Commercial Injunctions needs no introduction as the definitive text for those engaged in commercial pre-emptive remedies. For many years it has been regarded as the bible for legal professionals advising clients on injunctions. This eagerly awaited 6th Edition maintains and extends that sterling reputation. It has been fully updated in light of the Civil Procedure Rules changes and all other developments in this area of the law over the last ten years since the previous edition was published.
The comprehensive coverage includes all aspects of the law relating to commercial injunctions, including freezing injunctions, search orders, contempt proceedings, undertakings and damages, enforcement of a judgment, and much more. The new edition takes in the many key judgments made since the previous edition appeared and a wealth of other new content. For example the very important section on contempt of court has been expanded and divided into two distinct chapters.
Despite the title’s unparalleled in-depth coverage of the subject, it provides a highly practical and invaluable tool for practitioners, offering clear analysis and guidance. The author’s renowned understanding of the subject renders difficult concepts easily understandable and answers to key questions clear and accessible. Beyond this, Steven Gee discusses topical developments in a critical way, stimulating further thought, discussion and debate.
This new edition also includes an appendix providing a unique comparative look at similar practice and procedure in US federal and New York state courts by three practitioners from the leading US firm Shearman & Sterling.
