Put simply, an injunction is a court order that either sets out something that someone is required to do, or something which they are prohibited from doing. An injunction can be sought as a stand-alone procedure or as part of a wider dispute or court case.
Commercial injunctions are complex. Those looking for help with this type of legal proceeding should make sure they work with experienced and knowledgeable professionals who can effectively guide them.

How are injunctions used?
Injunctions are a widely used legal solution, which can be utilised in all kinds of cases. Common reasons for using this procedure include:
- Infringement - copyright, patent, trademark, etc.
- Contempt - both civil and criminal
- Disclosure - of sensitive information
- Preserving assets - to prevent money or property being hidden, disposed of or removed from the country
- Protecting privacy - to prevent release of sensitive personal or confidential business information
- Restrictive Covenants - employment and contracts for services or property covenants
