As legal practitioners in an offshore finance centre, we are used to receiving urgent requests for freezing order applications. We advise our clients on the merits of their claim and the procedure involved in seeking an injunction – including the mandatory undertaking as to damages. Gibraltar has a fused legal profession to that our resident practitioners are entitled to act as both barrister and solicitor. Often such applications in Gibraltar for freezing orders are made on foot of proceedings in other jurisdictions – sometimes with strict time limits being involved. As a result of this we are used to working under pressure. We advise too on disclosure aspects and the need for alternative forms of relief – Anton Piller Orders, Worldwide Mareva injunctions, Norwich Pharmacal relief and appointment of receivers by way of equitable execution, to name just a few examples.
