An injunction is often the only way to protect vital business assets such as intellectual property. If action is not taken promptly, substantial losses could result which may not be recoverable. It is usually preferable to preserve assets rather than trying to recover them. Our experienced lawyers are able to act quickly and decisively to preserve valuable assets if required to.
An injunction may be appropriate in the following situations:
- An employee takes confidential information (e.g. a database or trade secrets) from his employer, sets up or joins a competing business and uses the information to his advantage.
- A party to a property dispute attempts to demolish the property in question.
- A debtor threatens to remove assets from the jurisdiction to put them beyond the reach of his creditors.
- A manufacturer unlawfully copies goods and intends to sell them in competition with the lawful owner of the intellectual property rights.
