Our defamation team believes in providing client service to the highest standard. We do not, however, impose a standardised approach. We work with our clients to make sure we deliver exactly what our clients want by getting to know our clients’ needs and providing expert advice which is timely and commercially focused.
The defamation unit is part of our dispute resolution department which represents clients from a diverse range of industries which apart from the obvious publishing sector also includes the insurance, energy and construction sectors. We also act on behalf of a number of financial institutions.
Head of the Department, Alan McAlister has been ranked in the area of Defamation/Reputation Management by Chambers and Partners UK 2015.
We continue to act on behalf of the Johnston Publishing Group which is the publisher of the Newsletter, a leading Northern Irish daily newspaper, the Derry Journal and various local weekly papers throughout Northern Ireland.
