Out-Law Guides

  • Defamation

    The law of defamation aims to protect reputation, and applies to both individuals and companies. 

  • Misuse of private information

    The law protects people's right to privacy in a number of ways.

  • Malicious falsehood

    The law of malicious falsehood aims to protect economic interests. Malicious falsehood claims are sometimes made in tandem with, or as an alternative to, defamation claims. 

  • Harassment

    Under the Protection from Harassment Act of 1997 (PHA) harassing someone can be a criminal offence and can give rise to civil action. 

  • Food safety: the UK regulatory regime

    European law requires food businesses to ensure that only food which is safe is placed on the market. These requirements affect all stages of production, processing and distribution of food.

  • Product regulations protecting workers

    The criminal law imposes duties on both employers and suppliers to ensure that products provided for use at work are safe and free from risk. Failure to discharge these duties exposes businesses to the prospect of investigation by the regulators.
