Running a business is hard work. Sometimes, you need an attorney to get an injunction to ensure that competitors aren’t stealing your ideas or infringing on your rights.

If someone is infringing on your trade secrets or violating the terms of an agreement, every second delayed is costing you money and potentially hurting your business.

When Is Injunctive Relief Necessary?
If you’ve entered into an agreement with another party and now that party is violating the terms of the agreement, you might need an injunction. A legal injunction is a court order that commands a person to take a certain action. An injunction can also prohibit a person from taking a particular action. When a court issues an injunction in these situations, the other party will be compelled to stop doing a specified act. For example, the injunction may prohibit an ex-employee from revealing a trade secret of the business. If the former employee violates the injunction, they could be subject to civil or criminal penalties.
Importantly, injunctions are often issued prior to the resolution of a legal dispute. In these instances, the temporary injunction prevents the other party from performing the harmful action until a legal hearing can be held.
Injunctive relief may be necessary for a variety of situations, including:
- Enforcement of restrictive covenants, such as non-compete agreements or non-disclosure agreements
- Misappropriation of trade secrets or other confidential business information
- Protecting intellectual property, such as trademarks or copyrights
- Contract disputes
- Partnership disputes
- Employment compensation matters
- Business litigation, including sales or purchases of a business
- Nuisance and trespass litigation
- Environmental litigation
It’s an unfortunate fact of business that not everyone honors the terms of their agreements. For instance, you might have had an employee or business partner who entered into a restrictive covenant and later left the company. If that person is now failing to abide by the requirements of the non-disclosure agreement or non-compete agreement, your competitors may be gaining an unfair advantage. That’s why you need an immediate solution, possibly in the form of preliminary injunctive relief. Once you’ve received injunctive relief from a court, your legal dispute may be much easier to resolve. An injunction gives you a strategic advantage in your case: the other party will have an incentive to avoid a lengthy trial and possibly work out a settlement with terms that are favorable to you.
