ACCESS prides itself in undertaking most if not all of the advocacy involved in a defamation case, but we believe that our solution to any defamation claim is in dispute resolution.

  • We understand that litigation is expensive
  • We understand that lawyers can be costly

We therefore take a pragmatic and honest approach when advising our clients. ACCESS is conscious of the costs and demands of litigation and will always explore the prospects of a settlement and we have been successful in most of the cases that we undertook over the past 15 years.

  • We will keep you informed with costs
  • We do not underestimate or overestimate our costs
