This authoritative work addresses a range of legal infringements namely nuisance, trespass, invasion of privacy, breach of contract and the infringement of intellectual property rights.

Key Features:
• Clear and coherent analysis of the key legal principles applying to the law on injunctions in private law, which demonstrates how those principles can be applied to new issues as they arise
• Exposition of the current legal tests for the granting of injunctions and how they can operate most effectively
• Analysis of the claimant’s need for an immediate remedy and how this can be reconciled with the due process rights of the defendant
• Discussion of prevalent debates in contemporary injunctions law, such as the optimum test for granting interim injunctions and whether damages or injunctions are a more appropriate remedy for the infringement of private rights

Scholars and students of equity and trusts, contracts, and private law remedies will also benefit from the fundamental principles discussed in this essential resource.
Critical Acclaim
‘David Capper has drawn from his considerable breadth of knowledge on injunctions and damages in lieu of injunctions to write a book that is both comprehensive and accessible. His text is an important contribution to our understanding, and fills a gap in contemporary scholarship written for judges, lawyers and academics needing to know the current state of the law on injunctions in private law.’
