If a person makes an untrue statement about you that could be damaging to your business, reputation, or character, this could be defamation and mean that they have broken the law. To be classed as defamation, the statement must be made to at least one other person and can be spoken or written down.

If you believe you have suffered because of a defamatory statement someone has made, you can make a claim against them in the High Court. This could result in compensation or an order instructing the individual not to repeat the defamatory statement.
