BBDG represents businesses and individuals in defamation lawsuits and other First Amendment litigation. The firm has become increasingly involved in disputes involving the First Amendment as communications shift more and more towards electronic communications. In today’s heavily saturated social media and electronic communication environment, the First Amendment has become a growing battlefield. Within the last ten years, virtually everyone has entered a new era of publication with individuals as publishers.
BBDG has represented high profile individuals in defamation actions to restore the reputation of people harmed by the spread of false information made all the worse by the virtually infinite potential for the propagation of that information through the internet. The firm has also represented businesses and charities to defend against frivolous First Amendment claims. The firm understands the issues that surround the growing First Amendment litigation field and are on the cutting edge of the issues litigated now and to be litigated in the near future.
