• Internet or online defamation
• Invasion of privacy
There are times when one’s reputation or good name is tarnished by the false or misleading spoken or printed words of others. The publication of such falsehoods may constitute defamation, for which there is recourse under the law. KHK is experienced in the evaluation and handling of such claims, whether you are the one who published the alleged false remark or feel that your reputation has been damaged by such a remark.
We are intimately familiar with the defenses and privileges that may apply in a defamation claim, including the privileges associated with the First Amendment and with the common law. We also know the other claims that potentially could be filed when one’s reputation allegedly has been harmed, including claims for invasion of privacy and the infliction of emotional distress. Our experience is such that we often are able to resolve these claims without ever entering a courtroom.
Our experience and knowledge in this complex area of the law can give you a distinct advantage.
