We have acted for an author and developer of software to protect his product and goodwill in relation to defamatory comments issued by an international competitor who is a household name. By being involved at a very early stage, we were able to take immediate steps to ensure that the required retraction was forthcoming which in turn prevented substantial losses and foreign litigation.
