  • Interim injunctions in Cyprus for the freezing of assets and disclosure of documents and information

    The availability of interim relief is often crucial in ensuring satisfaction of any final court judgment or arbitral award. An interim injunction can ensure that property is not alienated while a case is still pending. In other cases it can level the playing field if one party (or even non-party) is restricting access to information material to the case. The ability to apply for interim relief is a vital tool for any legal jurisdiction. Cyprus is no exception. Due to its popularity as a centre for company incorporation, its legal system must also cater for the large number of companies registered on the island. Its legal regime on injunctions must be an effective one.
