The Internet has made the protection of individual and corporate reputation more topical and complicated than ever.  In order to comply with banking, anti-money laundering (AML), and know your customer (KYC) laws, financial institutions look ever more closely into their current and potential clients’ background and reputation.  A false statement published in a reputable media source or on an obscure website, which directly or indirectly accuses an individual or a corporation of money laundering, fraud, corruption, organized crime, terrorism financing, or other criminal activity, may drive away business partners and make a financial institution turn down a potential customer or terminate an otherwise successful relationship with its client.  NEMETS has advised and successfully represented clients in defamation matters and helped them recover their reputation and remedy the consequences of false and defamatory publications.
