Local Authority injunction

Sophie recently appeared in the High Court instructed by a Local Authority in order to apply for a prohibitory injunction. The land in question was to be used as a residential site, meeting with much opposition from local residents. The application was made as a matter of emergency as individuals had already begun to move on to the site in question. Sophie was able to accept instructions last minute and ensure that the matter was able to proceed to Court. She was successful in her application and the injunction was ordered for a period of one year.

Not only does this particular case demonstrate again that Sophie is able to work in pressurised situations, it also demonstrates Sophie’s ability to convey a sense of emergency to the Court where required so that matters can be resolved.
