It is possible for a defendant to challenge a freezing injunction – either get it dismissed or have the terms varied. Our experts have been helping individuals, companies and financiers with these complex applications since 2002. Let us help you too.

There are a number of grounds on which a freezing injunction can be challenged and at Francis Wilks & Jones we are experts at dealing with all aspects of challenging a freezing injunction.

Grounds for challenge include

Varying the terms of the freezing order

Otherwise, a freezing order can be varied in its terms, either by consent or following an application at the return date.

As most freezing injunctions at the outset are granted without any notice to a defendant, then it is often appropriate for a defendant to seek to vary the terms of a freezing order to make it more palatable in circumstances where there are no grounds to completely discharge the freezing injunction.


At Francis Wilks & Jones we are experts in challenging a freezing order and have great experience of this. Contact us now for expert freezing order advice.
