ReviewSolicitors' policy on reporting defamatory content

Statements that are true or that reflect an honest opinion (e.g. negative review) are not usually themselves a basis for defamation. You should carefully consider the facts before you make a claim (and take legal advice if in doubt), as a false claim may expose you to liability.

ReviewSolicitors reserves the right to ask for verification of your identity and to seek further information from you to clarify the basis of your claim. Please note that ReviewSolicitors may not be able to investigate claims that are anonymous or incorrectly addressed or do not provide sufficient information in the form of the Notice set out below. We will use reasonable efforts to identify defamatory content when notified but cannot be responsible where you have failed to provide all the relevant facts or where these facts cannot be ascertained. Any personal data you provide to us will be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy; please review this before sending personal data to us.

Warning: Any statement you make may be used in court proceedings. Any false, misleading or inaccurate information provided by you may result in civil and criminal liability.
