Injunctions present themselves as a challenging exercise for the practitioner. One needs to be fully conversant not only with the practice and procedure in adjectival law by also with the substantive law of the cause in question. For this reason, this text has been written not only with the practice in mind by also with the very many areas of practice that may be involved which are as diverse as family law and intellectual property.

This book aims to explain the law, practice and procedure of injunctions in Malaysia. Written and edited by an eminent legal practitioner, in collaboration with a group of expert authors, this publication has been prepared with court lawyers in mind, specifically those with the challenging task of praying for (and prevailing upon the court to grant) relief in circumstances where damages are simply not an adequate remedy.

The extensive coverage includes Mareva injunctions, Anton Piller orders, interim preservation of property, Erinford injunctions, enforcement of injunctions, Fortuna injunctions and applications under the Companies Act 2016, anti-suit injunctions, Worldwide Mareva injunctions as well as injunctions in matrimonial proceedings, insolvency & liquidation, tort, intellectual property and banking. This book is useful for lawyers, pupils in chambers, officers of the judiciary and other students of the law with an interest in civil practice and procedure.
