Injunctions, Search Orders and Freezing Orders
Injunctive relief includes a range of measures such as search orders, freezing orders and injunctions to prevent a breach of contract, preserve assets or recover stolen information or property. Injunctive relief can be used to prevent an employee breaching a restrictive covenant in their employment contract, such as contacting customers to offer a competing service. It can also be used to protect confidential information and prevent this being used by a competitor. Injunctions are often used in cases of fraud. In this situation, we can apply for a freezing order that prevents an organisation or individual disposing of money or goods that are the subject of a dispute. We can also apply for a search order to locate, seize and preserve money, goods or evidence.
You can apply for an injunction if the breach of contract or event has already occurred, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that one is about to occur.
