Emergency Relief in UK. Edmonds Marshall McMahon is a unique firm of solicitors and barristers, which prosecutes the full range of offences under the criminal law. The three founding partners have a combined total of 70 years’ experience in criminal justice and the firm offers a novel service to victims of crime – that is, of course, the ability to bring a private prosecution.
We frequently advise clients on whether some kind of emergency relief is appropriate in their circumstances and what, strategically speaking, is the right move. We apply for and obtain emergency relief in a range of circumstances, including blackmail cases. Given what is at stake, we understand that these cases require very careful handling, as well as urgent and effective action. In such cases, we consider various options for dealing with the blackmailer, including the possibility of an injunction, commencing criminal proceedings or engaging constructively with the demands.
As you may know, an injunction is a court order that compels a party to do or refrain from specific acts. Such an order may be necessary to prevent the loss of an asset, prevent damage to reputation or safeguard personal interests. Our team of lawyers has a wealth of experience navigating this process and, should you require this remedy, you would be safe in our hands.
The surge in digital currency crime also means more victims are seeking emergency redress through the courts, requesting freezing orders and proprietary injunctions to prevent funds from being dissipated. We have substantial experience of obtaining and robustly enforcing such court orders on behalf of our clients.
