Defamation: Dangers of social media and practical advice

Defamation: Dangers of social media and practical advice

Members of our sports team have extensive experience in advising both claimants and defendants in sports defamation cases and also in advising top athletes and sporting organisations on reputation management, particularly where they have faced adverse or intrusive media coverage in newspapers, national television, online publications, and on social media.

Rachael Somerset,  a specialist in reputation management, spoke to Manchester Evening News about some practical advice that athletes (and anyone on social media for that matter) should heed before firing off a tweet.

Rachael also spoke to City Wealth Magazine about how pictures and stories from nights out can result in legal action from sponsors and limit future earning potential.

If you require assistance in reputation management as a result of media comments made by, or against you, please contact Rachael.
