Business versus business defamation claims are becoming more common. Every time a business comments about its competitor through advertising or word-of-mouth, it runs the risk of a defamation lawsuit. At Mathison Whittles, LLP, our attorneys have litigated multiple business defamation claims. We can counsel business owners on the pros and cons of bringing these claims and the best ways to avoid becoming a defamation defendant while aggressively pursuing business goals.
The United States Constitution and the Florida Constitution protect businesses. Many times, the government takes actions that violate our federal and state constitution. Moreover, any entity acting under the authority of the government may also be responsible for business losses based on violations of our federal and state constitutions. Mathison Whittles, LLP has experience litigating constitutional claims on behalf of businesses, both in federal and state court.
