Whether it is your own reputation or that of your business, it takes a lifetime to establish your good name but only seconds to lose it unfairly in our age of instant global communication. Todd & Weld attorneys vigorously help clients fight back when this happens. Achieving a successful result in a defamation case is difficult – especially for a public figure – but our First Amendment lawyers have proven time and time again to be up to the task.
Our national media and First Amendment litigation and trial practice includes handling defamation claims on behalf of high-profile individuals and entities. We have represented high profile judges, attorneys, religious groups, businesses, politicians, entrepreneurs and even a national news media outlet and a rock star in highly publicized cases. We also regularly represent lesser known but equally important individuals and businesses who have suffered injury to their reputation because of a portrayal in a blog or other type of online attack.
Businesses victimized by online corporate or product disparagement regularly seek redress through our aggressive and astute representation.
Reflective of the firm’s reputation and standing, our attorneys are regularly recognized for excellence in First Amendment Law in Best Lawyers in America, a peer-review publication. Founding Partner Howard Cooper has been named by Best Lawyers as Lawyer of the Year in Boston for his First Amendment work.
