Can a company sue an individual for making false claims about that company.
1 Answer from Attorneys
Sure, it's called defamation. But the odds that anyone would actually invest the money needed to sue you is pretty slim unless it is absolutely clear that your false statements caused them real harm in some way.
If you need clarification, I suggest that you consult with a lawyer in private and discuss your objectives in more detail. You can start by calling around to several for a free phone consultation, get some insights then pick the best fit to work with.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
