The first strike in civil litigation may take place before any action has even started. Freezing injunctions are draconian and can prevent you from using your own assets for general living expenses and to fund legal advice and representation. As such, it may be necessary to urgently negotiate or apply for a variation of the Order.
The High Court has the power to issue Freezing Injunctions with a wide ranging control over assets. You may be required to make disclosure under penalty of contempt.
The ramifications of a freezing injunction can be catastrophic for a company or individual. At Brett Wilson we can support you through what can be an uncertain and difficult time, you will gain access to a team of committed professionals who will do everything in its power to help.
