While defamation and similar suits are too often used as weapons against free speech, our firm has experience fighting back. Our experience includes:

  • Currently representing local blogger in defamation suit
  • Currently representing non-profit organization in counterclaims for false advertising brought against client’s FOIA suit against University of Illinois

Please note that in addition to insurance coverage through professional media insurance, coverage may sometimes be found in homeowners, renters, or umbrella policies. If you’ve been sued for defamation or threatened with suit, check your policies right away, as many have strict provisions requiring prompt notification of a claim.
