If you need to preserve or prevent the loss of an asset, protect against personal harm, prevent loss or damage to reputation and safeguard business or personal interests, it may be necessary to apply for an injunction. An injunction is a court order requiring a party to do or stop doing a certain act.
If you are involved in a case as a Claimant and consider that you have good chances of success, but that there is a significant risk that the Defendant’s status quo may change (i.e. transfer his money out of the Court’s control) in a way that it will be difficult to ensure the protection of your rights and to “do justice” by the stage when judgment will be issued, then you can apply for an interim order, in the form of prohibitory or freezing injunctions or otherwise.
By their nature, an application for an injunction will usually require lawyers to work urgently as it is important to strike at the right time and/or react with speed and intelligence when on the receiving end of an application for injunctive relief.
