Injunctions

injunctionWhere somebody has failed to do something which they are obliged to do, or is doing something which they are not entitled to do, and where damages would not be an adequate remedy to resolve to issue in the longer term, it is open to a person to apply for a court injunction.

The purpose of the injunction may be, for example, to freeze a person’s assets or prevent someone from leaving the country, or to stop a person causing noise at night time, or to prevent a corporate body from acting in a particular way.

A court order will often be made after deciding whether the “balance of convenience” requires the intervention of the courts (or not as the case may be) pending a full hearing of the case at a later date.

At Tom Conlon Solicitors, we offer advice in relation to injunctions at an early stage and arrange for court applications to be made, where appropriate.
