The Mareva Injunction is a ubiquitous testament to the determination of the courts to keep pace with international commercial activity within the global economic landscape. Its usefulness is more the obvious with the advances in the mechanisms for the transfer of assets between borders. In essence it is a remedy obtained within a particular jurisdiction which can have a world-wide effect. It is an important equitable remedy within the armoury of the courts to restrain breaches of its process.

As the Mareva Injunction is a special variant of the Interlocutory injunction, the book begins with two chapters dedicated to injunctions and interlocutory injunctions respectively. The reader is taken from the various stages of the development of the Mareva injunction, beginning with its birth as it was developed by judicial decision from the late 1970s onwards, through the very nature of the Mareva Injunction and on to the procedure and practice of applying for a Mareva Injunction.

The width of the publication is evidenced by the inclusion of the Chapter on Mareva and Contempt. To complete the book, Chapter 12 examines Anton Piller orders. As the Mareva injunction was the endeavour of the English courts, extensive reference is made to English decisions. To further enhance its research value, decisions from Singapore and Australia are included. All relevant Malaysian decisions are included within each chapter. Every effort has been made to ensure that Mareva Injunctions provides the most up-to-date publication on the subject currently available in Malaysia.
