    Product Description

    Injunctive relief is a powerful tool available to litigants facing irreparable harm to their interests that monetary damages simply will not remedy. When serious issues are at stake, such as harm to a client's good will or the very ability of a business to continue operating, clients do not have the luxury of waiting through years of discovery, trial, and appeals before obtaining relief. They desperately need a court to intervene early to maintain the status quo during the pendency of the case. Unsurprisingly, situations where preliminary injunctive relief is appropriate therefore often arise quickly and require lawyers to expeditiously navigate a procedure that many find complex and confusing. Knowing exactly how to move for an injunction and maximize your likelihood of obtaining one can make or break your case early on. 

    Join our experts who discuss best practices for seeking injunctive relief including when such relief is appropriate, the legal standards involved, and the practical mechanics of how to go about obtaining an injunction in state and federal court in Massachusetts.
