Gudmundseth Mickelson Litigation Services

Defamation

Our wide range of experience and knowledge in this area of law enables us to provide strategic advice to both potential plaintiffs and defendants.  We have acted for victims of libel and slander and defended institutional and media clients who have been sued for defamation.

In British Columbia, we pioneered the application of negligence principles to the traditional framework of defamation law.  In addition to having a firm grasp of the legal complexities of defamation law, we place particular emphasis in exploring with the client the practical advantages and disadvantages associated with commencing a claim for libel and slander.
