Injunctions, Emergency Court Relief & Search Orders
Taking action to help your business
What is involved?
This is a complex area of the law, but sometimes it is necessary to take immediate action to protect your business where a dispute has arisen. You might require a party to stop a particular action or require them to undertake an action. That may include the use of freezing orders or search orders to find or preserve evidence or material that might otherwise be lost or dissipated.
It might also be necessary to seek interim or final injunctions to stop infringements that damage your business.
It is important to seek advice as early as possible as injunctions will often be accompanied by a penal notice. Any party breaching such notices runs the risk of being held to be in contempt of court, punishable by imprisonment, fines or seizure of assets.
