Types of Orders
Injunctions related to the freezing of assets can immediately prevent a defaulting opponent from disposing of assets and/or provide disclosure of information relevant to the assets and finances.
A client seeking injunctive relief will need to show either that assets or information is at risk of being removed or destroyed and that irremediable harm will be suffered if assets are not secured. If an injunction is granted and later proves to be unnecessary, the defendant may be allowed to seek compensation so a diligent process is required.
Search orders can be obtained to aid in the finding of assets or the evidence of assets in other jurisdictions. This type of discovery order can help prevent a defendant from seeking to defeat the ends of justice by shuffling assets or destroying documentary evidence. If documents are recovered through such orders of the Jersey court that are required for proceedings elsewhere, it is worth noting that the permission of the court will ordinarily be needed for secondary use. Sinels have experience in obtaining both types of orders and can offer substantial guidance on the correct procedures to follow.
