How can Vardags help?

Vardags’ reputation and privacy lawyers are experts in a wide range of matters, but we advise most commonly on the below.

A company’s reputation is its most valuable asset. For successful brands and companies, damaging allegations can cause serious damage to public and financial standing.

We regularly engage with publishers, ranging from established publications through to social media channels and even other companies, to seek the removal of defamatory allegations, and the correction and rectification of inaccurate data. Our lawyers have specific experience handling cases of Twitter libel (“Twibel”) and other aspects of social media law.

We often work with our clients’ existing legal, financial and PR advisers to create a seamless and effective strategy that addresses the issue on all fronts, ensuring consistent strategy and messaging.

Bad leavers can present a real threat to a company’s reputation if they have access to confidential information that they could leak, or material for blackmail.

Nevertheless, it is possible to take legal action to avoid potential fallout. Information leaks can fall within the remit of data protection law and the law of confidence. You can also protect yourself by enforcing existing contractual terms by, for example, securing emergency injunctions.

When bad leavers or disgruntled ex-employees are threatening to publish confidential information or damaging allegations, it is vital to act quickly. When appropriate, this may involve seeking an injunction.

Smear campaigns can have a devastating effect on the reputation and finances of successful companies and their executives. Defamation and conspiracy laws exist to protect businesses from such damaging accusations.

We can create a bespoke strategy to handle co-ordinated attacks on your business’s reputation, collaborating with your existing legal, financial and PR team to manage the issue on all fronts. We regularly engage with publishers, including national press and social media, to seek removal of defamatory allegations, and correction and rectification of inaccurate data. We can also help you uncover evidence as to who is behind the campaign.
