London Maritime Arbitration
Injunctions and arbitration
An injunction is an order requiring a party to do something or (more usually) to refrain from doing something. It is a remedy with a very broad range of use. For example, freezing orders may be granted to stop a party dissipating its assets pending the determination of a dispute (see chapter 18). Injunctions may also be the appropriate remedy to prevent disclosure of confidential information (see chapter 13). Injunctions are a general remedy which arbitrators can award under section 48(5) of the 1996 Act (see chapter 19).
