An injunction is a court order that legally obliges an individual or an organisation to take certain actions – or to desist from certain actions. Very often they are used to address an urgent threat to your business’s or individual wealth.
In the business world there are many possible scenarios which might prompt a company to seek an injunction. They are usually serious issues which could cause real and lasting damage to the company if not tackled.
Injunctions can be sought to: prevent infringement of copyright, trade marks or intellectual property rights; prevent the use of confidential information and trade secrets; prevent an ongoing breach of contract or the breach of a restrictive covenant or prevent publication of false and defamatory information.
