Defamation & Privacy


You have the right to protect your good name and reputation, and the law protects the individual from public, damaging statements. Defamatory statements do not have to be in writing to be actionable, and you may have a claim where any person makes a defamatory statement about you.


We can assist with:

  • Defamation claims
  • Cease & desist orders
  • Urgent interdicts
  • Damages claims

We can successfully claim damages for defamation by showing the court that someone published defamatory statements about you, intentionally. You have the right to protect your name, and our team of attorneys will help you enforce it.


Your right to privacy is protected in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. There are various laws protecting your privacy, including the heavily-publicised Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act. This law is comprehensive and offers extensive protection to individuals and their privacy.


We can assist with:

  • POPI enforcement
  • Privacy violation claims
  • Data breach claims
