The seven principles governing freezing injunctions.

  • There are seven principles that govern, or should govern, the jurisdiction of the court to grant a freezing injunction (not three as suggested by Beatson LJ in JSC BTA Bank v Ablyazov [2014] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 195, [34]).
  • An understanding of these principles is fundamental for practitioners seeking on behalf of their clients to invoke, or to resist the jurisdiction to award this draconian form of injunctive relief.
