Sometimes, circumstances exist where immediate action is required. For example, you may have been evicted from your business premises or home unlawfully, or another business may be using your registered trademark, or a debtor may be about to flee the country with your money. It is always recommended to seek legal advice and take immediate action, if appropriate, by making applications to the court for emergency injunctions. These can include the following:
- Search and seizure orders – sometimes defendants are liable to destroy crucial documents and condemning evidence. It may be possible to apply to the court for an order to search their premises and take away and preserve these documents.
- Negative injunctions – these are orders that stop your opponent taking certain damaging action.
- Positive injunctions – these are court orders that positively require your opponent to take certain action.
- Freezing orders – it may be possible to obtain an order to freeze your opponents bank accounts and assets to prevent those assets being dissipated or moved out of the jurisdiction.
