Sunday Life Defamation

We recently settled a claim for significant value against the Sunday Life Newspaper in relation a Defamation Action taken on behalf of a client wrongfully identified as being involved in a murder.

Proceedings were robustly defended but ultimately the matter was settled on favourable terms and a full apology was given to the Plaintiff. In complementing McIvor Farrell the Plaintiff said

“I felt (your) staff, throughout the whole process, dealt with my case professionally and efficiently at all times”

and went on

“From the very first introduction meeting to the conclusion I believe that I was given excellent and clear advice. I also felt supported and that I had someone on my side throughout this difficult time and throughout the negotiations to reach final settlement”

We were delighted to have been of assistance in this difficult and emotionally demanding case. If you feel that you may have been defamed please contact our litigation experts without delay.
