Expert Solicitors for Obtaining an Injunction for Harassment
WLL Solicitors are expert civil litigation solicitors who can assist you in stopping any harassment you are undergoing, and if necessary, make an application for an injunction to the Court preventing the offending party from harassing you.
Free Initial Discussion
You may be undergoing harassment if an individual or group of people are acting in a manner which causes you to feel concerned, humiliated, threatened and generally distressed. This abuse may constitute a criminal act should it be a repetitive act, having occurred at least more than once.
Should this harassment proceed even after involving your local authorities, it is possible to obtain an injunction from the Court, where the Court can order that the offensive actions stop or refrain the offending party from doing a specific act. In order for the Court to grant you the protection of a civil injunction, you must have a valid claim against the party you are wishing to seek protection against. Our expert injunction solicitors can assist you in obtaining an injunction and bringing an end to the continued harassment.
Why choose us?
WLL Solicitors have ranked as experts in Chambers and Partners for several years for their work in High Court litigation, and our solicitor’s diverse expertise in civil and commercial litigation including harassment injunctions, which enables us to swiftly bring your case to a favourable outcome, by being results driven and solution focused.
What can we do for you?
Injunctions can either be made on an interim or final basis, with a final injunction being granted after trial. Prior to the trial, an interim junction will be made to ensure that the harassment matter do not escalate in the time in between, i.e. the period between the interim and final injunction. An interim injunction can be applied for on an urgent basis and without notice being given to the other party. The other party can then instruct solicitors and make his or her representations at the return date, at the final injunction stage.
In order for a final injunction to be made, the application made will need to successfully convince the Court of the following test:
It must be ‘just and convenient’ to grant an injunction – that is to say, a fair balance must be found between the rights of the parties
The case, namely the harassment been complained of being must be supported by evidence
Should the first two elements be satisfied, then the ‘balance of convenience’ should be considered
Balance of Convenience
Whether any payment of damages would be an adequate enough remedy for the Applicant, i.e. you if you are applying for the injunction, should you succeed at trial.
If you can be compensated for the act been complained of by money and the court may say that an injunction is not the appropriate remedy.
If damages are not adequate, would the only thing that will provide a sufficient remedy be an injunction?
The Applicant, the person making the application for the harassment injunction, may have to provide an undertaking to pay the other side compensation if the Court later decides that it should not have granted the interim injunction (i.e. the applicant will be required to provide a ‘cross undertakings in damages’).
Our expert solicitors can talk you through this process, and ideally look to bring the matter to a close at the earliest opportunity by threatening the opponent with an injunction unless he or she abstains from repeating the offending behaviour. If the matter does proceed to court, we will fight your case in order to obtain the injunction and bring an end to your harassment, which we recognise may be the only option in some cases.
