  • Defamation against a business

    Defamation against a business on internet forums, blogs and other social media could very easily slip out of control and turn a business’ reputation from brilliant to poor. Typically, a single customer or a former employee will post defamation against a business they had engaged with to create the false impression of general customer’s dissatisfaction. Often this type of action becomes self- fulfilling prophecy. Real or potential customers become influenced by the negativity they read about the business online and they respond by either moving away from the company or by not engaging with it in the first place.

    Before responding to a negative review or to online defamation against your business, remember that once you post a statement online, you might never be able to take it back. Always consider the impact of any statement you volunteer to the online community on your business’ long term reputation. Decisions concerning a response to online defamation against a business should be strategic and account for the likely consequences of each action or inaction.

    We believe that most UK business owners are great people who work relentlessly to cement their good reputation among their customers. Defamation against a business, large or small could undo years of hard work. As a business owner, you have a choice to either respond to online defamation against your business, ignore it or pursue a hard line and have it removed from the internet altogether.

    Before deciding what to do, just consider what message you wish to send out to your consumers, investors and to your employees. Is it in your business best interest to publicly respond to the defamation or perhaps your company’s long term interest will be better served by taking a tougher, uncompromising approach? This is a hard choice, we know. A real gamble on the future of your business’ reputation. It therefore makes sense to call us, free, on 0800 612 7211 because it is likely that we have already dealt with a similar case to yours at least once in the past 20 years.

  • Getting disclosure from Google

    Information about how to obtain a disclsoure order from Google

    If you want to know how to get disclosure from Google about a Google user who uses Google Blogger, Google Plus, Google Maps or any other Google service to post defamation and/or harassing material about you or about your company on the internet, give us a call and we will help you.

    Getting disclosure from GoogleAfter nearly 10 years of obtaining disclosure orders against Google, we have pretty much streamlined our processes of obtaining a variety of disclosure orders in relation to most Google services.

    We work, together with Google's legal team, on agreed terms of disclosure orders, which are in most cases also accepted by the courts in the UK as fully compliant with the requirements of the law.

    In most cases Google lawyers would agree to the terms of the disclosure orders as proposed by us and would nearly always disclose to our lawyers user's information in a speedy and helpful manner. Often the process of obtaining a disclosure order from Google results in the deletion and/or the removal of the offending posts from Google services and from the internet altogether.

  • Legal action defamation

  • Legal liability of website operators in the UK

    Let us help you to smoothly manage your online forum by removing any worries about the legal stuff

    The most practical way for you, as an operator of a website or an internet forum in the UK, to protect your position is to know what your rights and obligations are. Yes, there is plenty of information on the internet which you can read but much of it (we are told by our clients) is either too general or too detailed for you to be sure of your true legal position.

    To keep things simple but safe we invite you to call us today and to speak with an expert internet lawyer in a consultation dedicated to you and to your business. There are only 3 or 4 law firms in the UK which genuinely specialises in internet law and which are able to offer you a long term relationship of trust coupled with outstanding legal advice and support. As an operator of an online forum or a review website you are likely to need to have a good understanding of your rights and obligations in relation to defamation, data protection and privacy laws. You are likely to benefit from advice on drafting the most appropriate legal documents for your website, which include privacy policies, website terms and conditions and often users’ agreements and a code of conduct for your forum.

    We will, as a matter of course, advise you on trademarks for your online business and will carry out international trademark searches to ensure you are safe. We will check if you are compliant with data protection laws and particularly where your users’ data is stored and whether this is compliant with EU data protection laws. We will further advise you on defamation, privacy and other legal issues which you are likely to encounter as an operator of an online forum or a review website. Most importantly however, once we speak with you in a consultation and have an understanding of your business and your passions, you will establish a relationship with us which means we will always be there to help and support you on short notice.

  • Remove criminal record from the internet

    Criminal convictions that appear on the internet are often hugely detrimental to anyone who wants to get their life back after being convicted by a court of any offence. The more serious the conviction is the more you would want publication of it to go away, particularly if you are entitled to be rehabilitated by law.

    Our solicitors have huge amount of experience in making successful applications to Google and to the ICO to have information about past criminal convictions and other legal proceedings removed from the internet. If anyone one can help you remove criminal record from the internet it would us, based on our extensive experience.

  • Remove my name from Google.

    There are different ways by which you can remove your name from Google search results. If you want to remove your name from Google because search results that Google presents are defamatory, you can either do this by applying defamation law, privacy law or data protection law.

    If the information that Google presents about you is not defamatory but is private or perhaps is not private but you have decided that you are no longer wishing for it to be presented to the world via Google searches, you can in most cases use European data protection and privacy laws to have the information removed from Google searches.

    If the information that you wish to remove includes images or videos, which perhaps in the past you were happy for Google to present but now you feel slightly uncomfortable with, you can utilise data protection law, privacy law and copyright law to force Google to remove the unwanted images and/or videos from searches or apply these laws towards the operator of each of the relevant websites.

    Whatever the reason is for your wish to have your name removed from Google, you have certainly come to the right place for helpful advice.

  • Remove private information from the internet.

    Remove private information from the internet There are different ways by which you can remove private information from the internet. Private information could be information that you put on the internet yourself but that you no longer wish for it to remain online. Private information is also information or data that was placed on the internet by others.

    It could be your address, your date of birth, names of members of your family and other information, which if processed in a certain way, could be considered as private. Private information that you can remove from the internet may also include images and videos showing your face or body, whether posted by you or by others.

    You can remove private information from the internet by using privacy law, data protection law, copyright law and sometimes even defamation law. Often, however, a well written letter to the operator of the website which hosts your private information would do. If you are a retiring celebrity or used to be a model or an adult entertainer, it is likely that there is large amount of private information about you on the internet.

    In some cases, this may include hundreds and even thousands of articles, images and videos, which perhaps earlier in your life you were happy to remain online but now you consider private and wish to remove from the internet. Maybe because you started a family or a different job, images or other private information that you were previously happy to see on the internet is no longer to your liking. In this case, it might take some time to remove all your private information from the internet, and in some cases, up to one year.

    But this should not deter you because you have now arrived at the right place, perhaps the only place in the UK where there is help available. You will be pleased to hear that we have already assisted individuals exactly like you in systematically removing private information from the internet. Brows our website for case studies, testimonials and plenty of free advice and call us to speak to someone who will be delighted to advise and support you.

  • Right to be forgotten solicitor

    A successful application to Google under a Right to be Forgotten might seem only 1000 characters away. Google makes it look easy, simple and straight forward and so as your own general lawyer might.

    But be careful! Usually you only get one go at it and once your application is refused, Google will be unlikely to change its mind. Don’t gamble with the one opportunity you were offered to remove information from the internet. You deserve more. Make sure you call our right to be forgotten privacy lawyers first and certainly before you or your local lawyer submit any application to Google.

  • UK defamation lawyer

  • US Internet Law Attorney

    If you are looking for a US internet lawyer or an internet law attorney to help you obtain a court order, a disclosure order, a subpoena or an injunction against a USA based website, then we fully sympathise with your natural worries and concerns. We know that for most individuals who, like yourself, have had little dealings with lawyers, finding and actually instructing a new lawyer, particularly in a relatively unfamiliar area of law and in another country, is nerve-racking and even frightening.

    It’s not only the costs we are worried about for you, it is the quality of the work that you must not risk. Internet law is now the fastest growing area of law in the USA, which means a growing number of attorneys are jumping on the internet law bandwagon, making a risky, treacherous and a highly-complicated branch of the law very dangerous to their unsuspecting clients.

    The damage that a well intending yet naïve US (or UK) attorney may cause your internet law case and to you personally, by misapplying the law or by misinterpreting a particular situation or by responding or initiating communication or proceedings inappropriately, is often irreversible. This is precisely the most common cause of the Streisand Effect, which is an unintended consequence of publicising more widely the very same information you are trying to remove from the internet.

    If you are looking for a US internet law attorney, then stop searching now and start relaxing because you have finally arrived at a place of safety. Our lawyers either know personally or have experience in dealing with or have referred clients to the very best and the most established US internet law attorneys and in almost every State in the US. We carry out work for their US clients here in the UK and they look after our UK based clients who seek internet law legal advice in the US.

    They get us subpoenas and disclosure orders from nearly every local court in the US and we do the same for them here, in England. We speak to our US internet law attorneys almost every day and we meet each one of them at least one or twice a year. If we don’t know a local US attorney in a particular US town, then we know someone who will recommend us one. We want our clients to be safe, to feel safe and most importantly to be in safe hands, here in the UK but also in the US because the internet is borderless and because we care.
