Accreditations & Memberships
Our solicitor Harry Jordaan represented a client opposing a freezing order in the Supreme Court. The other party had applied for orders freezing our client's bank accounts and assets pending the resolution of court proceedings to secure a claim of over a million dollars.
The application was rejected by the Supreme Court after Mr Jordaan demonstrated that no real risk existed that our client would dissipate the assets. The court accepted Mr Jordaan's submission that the fact our client intended to sell their residential property was not enough to warrant a freezing order.
