Customer Question

Good morning
An allegation has been made against me which threatens to damage my reputation and is having a effect on board members that have to vote to approve my nomination.
No formal process or investigation has taken place into the allegations and I have never been made aware of this issue until Sunday. The incident relates to a situations from March 2016. The allegations were meet at a recent board meeting held on Saturday where my nomination was discussed
Given that potentially my reputation has been affected do I have grounds for defemation?

If you were defamed in the meeting then you would potentially have a claim arising. I would instruct solicitors as this area can be quite complicated and seek a written explanation as to what was said, by whom and with what evidence.
