can you counter in multiplayer?

Nope, well not counter attack like in SP when fighting.

The only counter is to stun (or humiliate) your hunter, but assassinate/kill takes priority over stun, so it's difficult to pull off without abilities (smoke, charge, etc).

Assassinate is slightly different, in that you have to lock on to a player target to be allocated them as a contract to kill.
Therefore if you lock on them first, you are the hunter trying to kill them, and they can try to stun you, but if someone locks onto you first, you become their contract to kill, and it's up to you to try and stun them.

If you're not familiar with MP, I would suggest trying wanted and/or manhunt to get to understand the game mechanics first, then maybe move on to assassinate, chest capture and the other modes.

Also, the tutuorial in MP can be quite helpful - try out there for the initial basics.

There are also LOTS of threads on the MP forum discussing what tactics and strategies work well, and what abilities counter others.
Have a search and read, I'm sure you'll find plenty of useful info.
