Course Details

Freezing and search orders - formerly known as Mareva and Anton Piller orders respectively - have been described as the law's two nuclear weapons.  Both are interim orders developed to prevent the frustration of the court's processes.

A freezing order restrains a defendant from removing or dissipating assets.  A search order preserves evidence that is in danger of destruction or concealment.

The law and practice as to both anticipatory remedies continues to develop and evolve.  This session is intended to provide a practical approach to bringing or answering an application for a freezing or search order.
