Rights and asset protection is time-critical.

Emergency Injunctions

We understand that there will be situations where a client needs to urgently preserve or prevent the loss of a valuable asset, protect itself against financial harm, prevent loss or damage to its reputation or safeguard its confidential information. These situations usually arise as part of a wider dispute and require urgent action. Often, the only option is to involve the courts and urgent applications can be made to the court for an interim injunction to protect a client’s rights or assets.

Obtaining an injunction is often just the first step in the litigation process, as the injunction order may only remain in place until the court has had the opportunity to deal fully with the underlying dispute.

Our extensive experience in dealing with injunction applications covers applying for, obtaining and defending injunctions across a wide range of sectors including technology, energy and real estate, and relates to a variety of issues ranging from misuse of confidential information to IP infringements and trespass.

It’s this experience that enables us to provide a fast and efficient service to ensure that injunction applications are heard by a Judge at the earliest opportunity, whilst providing our clients with pragmatic and commercial advice based on their objectives.
