A Freezing Order is an interim injunction that prevents a person from disposing of or dealing with certain assets. The usual objective of a Freezing Order is to preserve the assets until a judgement is obtained or enforced.
Assets that are typically the subject of Freezing Orders are property, stocks and shares, bank accounts, and valuable assets such as luxury cars and art. A Freezing Order can apply in the UK only or be applicable worldwide.
Freezing Orders have been called the “nuclear weapon” of the law and will only be made in situations where it is just and convenient to do so. Our HNW Solicitors have the experience and tenacity required to collate the evidence and, alongside a top Barrister or Queen’s Counsel, persuade the Court that such an injunction is needed.
