Business Attorney David M. Walker, Esq. is in partnership with The Schenk Law Firm, a boutique litigation firm that helps businesses and professionals protect their reputation when defamed online or in print.
Commercial defamation (also referred to as Business Defamation) is the publication, whether spoken or written, of a false statement that damages a company or professional’s business reputation and good will. For example, untrue accusations about your business posted on Yelp, Kudzu, or Google that have caused you to lose a measurable amount of business may give rise to an action for defamation.
If you find yourself in this situation, you need to act quickly to preserve your reputation. Laws vary from state to state, and depending on the defendant, constitutional defenses may be presented.
Do not take the chance of navigating a defamation claim yourself.
