As evidence is emerging that proves defamation against a company has the real potential of influencing its share value, company directors and particularly non-executive directors, are becoming more concerned about finding themselves victims of defamation. Whilst feeling as if you are not being listened to or being ignored, it does not take long before those who defamed the company in the first instant escalate their defamatory activities and begin to target the executives. This adds a new element of risk to the position of a non-executive director of a company.
