All aspects of injunctive relief are covered by everyone within the group / Chambers, including:
Injunction – (a judicial order) restraining a person from beginning or continuing an action threatening or invading the legal right of another, or compelling a person to carry out a certain act, e.g. to make restitution to an injured party.
Ex parte – granted after hearing only one party (in case of a great urgency)
Interim – granted to restrain the accused until a certain date
Freezing – (formerly called a Mareva Injunction) is an interim injunction that restrains a party from disposing of or dealing with assets. The usual purpose of a freezing order is to preserve the defendant’s assets until judgment can be enforced.
This can be obtained Worldwide or just domestically. The effect from a court order is to freeze a debtor’s assets to prevent them being taken abroad.
