If you have you been served with a Concerns Notice or a Statement of Claim alleging that you have defamed someone, you should take early advice and quick steps to address the issue.
If you have published material and it is defamatory of the complainant, then you could consider an early mediation as a means of resolving a dispute that could otherwise cost you upward of a hundred thousand dollars in costs alone, let alone any damages award that might be made.
Even if the material is not defamatory or you think you have a valid defence – even if you win a trial – the costs of litigation mean that you will usually, if not always, end up out of pocket and potentially by tens of thousands of dollars.
An early resolution by mediation can avoid that.
