tdlawyer :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer. I shall help you with your query.

tdlawyer :

Do you have any reason to believe that the company/individual concerned will dissipate their assets, for example, to prevent you from enforcing your judgment if you get one, perhaps by moving the money to another country or hiding it away?

JACUSTOMER-1z60mn6a- :

have heard that family are attempting to sell small items ie wine, whilst this is a small item it could be the tip of an iceburgh. It is believed that the money has been invested privately and know one appears to know where

tdlawyer :

Okay. In order to obtain an injunction freezing the assets of a potential defendant, you will need to demonstrate to the court that they are in the process of dissipating, or there is a real risk of dissipating their assets.

tdlawyer :

This is not necessarily all that difficult to do. Of course, it does depend upon the circumstances of every individual case. However, where you do have a reasonable suspicion of this, the court will often grant a freezing injunction, although it is important you apply for this promptly, and without disclosing it to the other side.

tdlawyer :

It is important that you maintain secrecy, about a potential application for a freezing injunction. If you tell the other side, that's a reason for the court to decline making such an order.

tdlawyer :

Are you intending to do this yourself, or through solicitors?

tdlawyer :

Are you still there?

tdlawyer :

Are you there still?

JACUSTOMER-1z60mn6a- :

still await your reply to my answers given earlier

tdlawyer :

Hello. I was trying to answer you earlier. I had asked whether you intended to use solicitors? I was going to explain some of the procedure to you.

tdlawyer :

What would you specifically like me to address for you?
