Q: Nat. company’s website refers to a hired person’s “bio” & includes false claim of starting event that’s yours. Sue comp?

Their is the local branch that the person was hired but the person works all over the country with the large nat. company. It is still active on the website. I know they scrubbed social media for everything/ anything when he hired, but the liar wrote this bit and they missed it. Can I file a cease and desist? Before a lawsuit? Do I have to file to the individual or can I file against the large money managers company? Do I file locally or to the headquarters? I need an attorney. Uggg..
