Injunctions & Interim Remedies

Our team of specialist dispute resolution lawyers have formidable experience and expertise in securing and defending injunctions and other forms of emergency interim relief.

Home » Business Law » Dispute Resolution » Injunctions

In some cases the only way to protect your business or rights from harm is by rapid and decisive action.

An injunction is a Court Order restraining a party from acting (or requiring them to act) in a certain way in order to prevent damage or loss. The purpose of an injunction is to preserve the status quo pending the outcome of litigation, although in practice its hard-hitting effect will often bring the dispute to a swift conclusion.

Our lawyers have exceptional experience in this complex and challenging area of law and are capable of taking fast and decisive action in the Courts where necessary, including in relation to:

  • Injunctions restraining ongoing breaches of contract
  • Injunctions enforcing restrictive covenants
  • Injunctions protecting confidential business information
  • Injunctions restraining publication of defamatory material (including on the internet)
  • Orders for the delivery-up of goods
  • Orders for specific performance of contractual or other obligations
  • Freezing orders over assets
  • Search and seize orders

We also have very considerable experience of seeking and obtaining orders against potential parties to litigation and others for disclosure of documents and information before Court proceedings are commenced.

Examples of work we have been involved with in this area include:

  • Search and seize injunction resulting in recovery of customer database and pricing information
  • An action against a former senior employee of a manufacturing company over the unlawful taking of trade secrets involving the instruction of enquiry agents to carry out surveillance and forensic IT specialists to preserve evidence.
  • Acting in an application to freeze the assets of a former managing director pending a fraud claim against him.
  • Acting for the successful party in a leading Court of Appeal case clarifying a party’s right to gain access to documents in the possession of a potential party to litigation before commencing proceedings to establish whether out client’s suspicions of wrong-doing were well-founded.
  • Applying for an obtaining orders for the preservation and delivery-up of goods for a major manufacturing company.
  • Obtaining an injunction preventing interference with an LPA receiver’s right to possession of land.
