Injunctions are powerful legal remedies that can be sought and granted in a wide range of disputes. Injunctions represent the culmination of a court's authority and discretion and can be used to force a party to stop doing something or, failing that, to compel them to act positively.
Injunctive relief is a specialized area of law that requires a lawyer with significant experience. To obtain an injunction, one must be guided by a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of this highly technical area of law and who can use that knowledge for the strategic benefit of the client.
At Caza Saikaley, our highly trained commercial litigators have successfully obtained injunctions on behalf of individuals and organizations for many years. We understand the importance of quick and smart action in cases where it is important to stop or force something to happen in a very short period of time. We can act quickly to protect the interests of our clients and ensure their problem is dealt with effectively.
How injunctions can be used
In the context of a commercial dispute, such as an allegation of commercial fraud, injunctions may be used where there is a risk that important documents or records will be destroyed, to require a party to provide information about assets or customers, or to locate funds.
When there are allegations of a breach of fiduciary duty by a director or officer, an injunction may be used to put an end to a fault or specific action of the director or officer.
In the event of a contractual dispute or suspected breach of the terms of an agreement, an injunction may be used to end the actions that lead to the breach.View all Areas of Practice
