Preliminary Injunctions & Temporary Restraining Orders

When you obtain a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order, you receive, in effect, an order to protect the status quo. The court enforces this protective order through powers of contempt. Courts typically have broad powers of contempt, which can include financial sanctions, attorney fees, and, in extreme cases, incarceration or imprisonment for a limited period of time. In other words, once you receive a protective restraining order, your opponent will not have the choice to violate it. Our capable attorney at NWBizLaw will work to secure the emergency order you need.

Obtaining a Restraining Order

A restraining order is a court order preventing a party from starting or continuing a certain activity until some later time in the future (typically, about 2 weeks). Most people associate restraining orders with forcing a person to stay away from your home or workplace. But many entities obtain these orders for different purposes. With our help, obtaining a restraining order can be a relatively straightforward and highly effective process.

After filing the initial motion for a temporary restraining order, you can change it by motion to a preliminary injunction. This order has the same effect as a restraining order but lasts until the case closes.

Pursuing Injunctive Relief

In a business case, the factual standards of proof for obtaining injunctive relief are high. Typically, courts are reluctant to restrain the behavior of parties, and you must show proof of actual current conduct, such as the illegal liquidation of a unique and irreplaceable corporate asset (e.g. real property). Even a strong probability of threatened misconduct will usually not suffice.

Because of these challenges, our injunction attorney can closely evaluate your situation and develop multiple strategies to accomplish your goals. If we cannot secure an injunction on your behalf, we will work tirelessly to find a suitable alternative.

We understand how urgent this matter is, and we will work to obtain emergency relief as soon as possible. Begin with a consultation by calling (206) 565-0090 today.
