Sherlock and Co. Defamation Solicitors

According to the Irish Court Service, the number of defamation lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years, with social media regarded to be a key driver in this growth. Whereas main stream media is normally subject to certain checks and balances prior to publication, social media enables users to easily post unfiltered remarks at any time. Regrettably, such statements, if defamatory, may gravely destroy an individual’s excellent reputation, which has taken years to establish.

Sherlock & Co Defamation Solicitors are market leaders in defamation law, having successfully advised and defended clients in many Court defamation lawsuits for both Plaintiffs and Defendants over the last 30 years.

Our litigation and dispute resolution team have the essential expertise, understanding, and legal abilities to properly handle any defamation claim. We have extensive expertise using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques to resolve defamation cases peacefully. ADR has the significant benefit of keeping the case private by bypassing the official court system, and is often considerably quicker and less expensive than litigation.

We can help defamation victims in getting apologies, retractions, and monetary damages. And in recent years, we’ve created a strong legal capability for resolving defamation claims regarding the posting of information or comments on:

  • YouTube, or any other public video-on-demand service
  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger are all examples of social media platforms.
  • Websites devoted to media and journalism
  • Blogs and video diaries
  • Sites dedicated to online reviews (e.g. Glassdoor, TripAdvisor)
