Chadbourne’s Reputation Protection and Defamation Litigation group protects companies, brands and individuals from unfair reputational attacks that present an increasing threat in the competitive 24/7 information environment. Our seasoned lawyers know how to navigate the complexities of First Amendment law and raise the risk for publishing false and misleading information. We provide pre-publication counseling to stop damaging inaccuracies from being published in the first place by the media, competitors and government. Some of our greatest successes are the stories that never ran. When damaging misinformation is published, we swiftly advocate for truth to correct the record, obtain a retraction or initiate litigation to rectify the wrong.  Our lawyers have a strong track record successfully trying defamation, product disparagement, unfair trade practices and First Amendment cases in trial, appellate and administrative courts.

We work closely with our clients to manage media crises arising from investigations, high profile news stories, online reports, litigation and government enforcement proceedings. To prevent undue governmental or agency concern arising from damaging misinformation, Chadbourne lawyers offer problem-solving strategies to provide  Congressional members, agency officials and other stakeholders with accurate information.
