Defending an injunction or freezing order
If you’ve had your assets frozen or are the subject of an injunction, it can be a terrifying and highly emotional situation. The team at Morgan Rose has handled scores of freezing orders and injunctions on cases that regularly approach £100 million in value. Our job is to take out the emotion and to provide clear thinking, fast advice that will provide the best chance of success and allow some form of normality to be established as quickly as possible.
Bringing an injunction or freezing order
Morgan Rose has a strong track record in helping clients to successfully secure injunctions and freezing orders – but bringing a freezer order or applying for an injunction is not something to be taken lightly nor without expert advice. In bringing an order you have duties to the Court and must clearly set out what the best defence would be. Orders also require swift action and a decent fighting fund, as they can be expensive.
What is a freezing order?
A freezing injunction is a court order that prevents an individual or company from either disposing of or dealing with its assets. These assets can include money held in bank accounts, land, vehicles, shares, and bonds. They can also include assets held beneficially for another party, for example assets held on trust.
What to do if you receive a freezing order
A freezing order will mean you can’t access your bank accounts, pay your bills and deal with your assets. This makes it essential to get quick and accurate advice to help you full understand the terms of the freezing order and establish how you can function without breaching the order. Morgan Rose can help you with clear thinking advice and solutions that will improve your chances of success.
