Freezing and Search Orders

This book provides a solid, accurate, and helpful practical reference to those seeking interim relief orders, or fighting them, and to show how they can be flexible to protect legal rights and achieve a cost effective practical result in litigation and arbitration.
Litigation and any other form of dispute resolution is redundant if the winning party cannot enforce its judgment or award, or cannot hold the position between the parties in the interim before a decision is made. The theory of who should win needs to give way to the practical, but often complicated, task of ensuring that all relevant evidence is before the decision-maker (judge or arbitrator) and that the potential fruits of a favourable decision are not dissipated to leave the winner without financial or practical recourse.
This practitioner's guide enables you to protect your client's position in litigation or arbitration, and ensures that success in court is not hampered by destruction of evidence, or does not lead to an expensive hollow victory because no funds or assets are available.
