Unlawful Slander/Defamation

The damage to a persons reputation caused by slander or defamation is often a cause of great anxiety. Slander or defamation can occur via comments or opinions in the media, in correspondence or in communication. It can also occur in any setting, such as the workplace, the community or on the sports field.

Disputes that arise due to unlawful slander or defamation are best resolved via mediation. Mediation allows each party to voice their concerns, an important step in resolving these types of disputes. Furthermore, mediation is confidential, reducing anxieties over further damage to reputations.

Mediation Articles


"A Mediator should never provide an opinion or advice concerning the merits of a case" verses "a Mediator should always offer an evaluative opinion on the dispute"


It is crucial to the success of any mediation that compliance be enforced with the requirement of attendance of the parties in person and an officer from corporate parties with full authority to settle.
