An application for an injunction will usually require us to work urgently with you to respond to an injunction or initiate the steps required to protect a business.

The following are examples of circumstances giving rise to injunctions:

  • Recovery of property
  • Recovery and prevention of use of confidential information
  • Defamation and privacy matters
  • Freezing orders e.g. freezing bank accounts or assets
  • Protection from harassment
  • Preventing nuisance and trespass
  • Preventing breach of contract or confidence
  • Preventing copyright infringement
  • Enforcing restrictive covenants, including restraint of trade and non-compete clauses
  • Restraining sale of land or property
  • Restraining winding up petitions
  • Search orders, e.g. to preserve evidence and/or property
  • Specific performance, e.g. an order requiring a party to perform a specific act
