  • For local companies, dealing with false and fictitious reviews, we help our clients, and their attorneys solve these problems.

    • Often we work in a litigation support role with the client’s local attorney to help in these key aspects:
      • Identification of poster
      • Removal of damaging material
      • & Estimate of damages and future protection.

  • ChrisOne of the challenges faced in internet defamation is determining the extent of damages that internet defamation causes. As an attorney, you want to appropriately recover damages for your client and ensure that their reputation is not impacted months or years into the future. If you can prove lost revenues, then that is one level of damages. But what about the potential ongoing (lifetime) costs if material still stays on the internet, i.e., online reputation management?

    For victims of internet defamation, determining the extent of these future costs can be a difficult task because of a few factors:

    • Many items are permanent on the internet
    • Few techniques exist to remove damage
    • Techniques to restore reputation are varied in quality
    • Attorneys on both sides are inexperienced in internet issues
