Malicious Falsehood

Publication of a false statement, even though it may not cast any aspersions on the person, may still be damaging. If one dentist were to state falsely that a rival dentist had retired, when in fact he knew he had not, there would be no cause of action for libel or slander. However, the law of malicious falsehood would potentially be available to provide a remedy. 5RB are amongst the undisputed leaders in this field of law and our members are experienced in advising on and acting in malicious falsehood claims, both on behalf of claimants and defendants.
