Net Libel is a new reputation management service created by a team of prominent lawyers to help individuals and corporates protect their reputation by dealing with Internet Libel. Internet libel, or “net libel,” has become a serious problem for businesses, celebrities and public figures.
When asked about the new company, Jonathan Caplan QC, a highly respected Barrister and one of the founders of Net Libel says, “Reputations today are easily and quickly tarnished by the posting of defamatory material online. Unlike with printed newspapers, the Internet is viral enabling a damaging slur to become an accepted fact in no time.”
While other reputation management services are available, these are mainly built on the concept of pouring new positive and neutral content into the Internet to help push down the negatives. This approach is expensive, as it requires continual effort in the form of content creation and distribution, and ineffective as it does not remove the negative material.
Net Libel offers a much more direct and cost-effective solution with the aim of removing Internet Libel.
Net Libel is able to offer this service either on a case by case basis for a very reasonable cost, or on a membership basis with a range of options — the preferred arrangement for businesses and high profile individuals. Net Libel also offers a monitoring service, whereby they continually scour the web for new content.
Net Libel’s expertise in the area of Internet libel is due to its highly qualified and dedicated team: Jonathan Caplan QC, Paul Tweed, Paul J. Wright, and Tim Drukker.
Jonathan Caplan QC is one of the UK's most highly respected barristers. His clients include many FTSE 100 companies, national newspapers, television companies and high profile individuals.

Mr. Tweed appeared in the BBC documentary on UK Libel Law 'See you in court', and represents a number of high profile individuals and corporates.
