Product Description

Shortlisted for the 2003 Walter Owen Book Prize (first edition)

This new edition of The Law of Equitable Remedies significantly expands upon earlier editions by incorporating more case references and enhanced discussions of the most salient cases. Changes include:


• Chapters on interlocutory injunctions fully discuss the Supreme Court’s new revisions to the standard for interlocutory mandatory injunctions.
• Chapters on asset preservation orders (Mareva Injunctions) and search orders (Anton Piller Orders) have been revised to account for new decisions
that respond to current developments in the digital universe.
• Chapters on specific performance have been significantly revised.
• Chapters on equitable damages and equitable compensation have been rewritten to reflect recent developments of the UK Supreme Court on the former, and of the Supreme Court of Canada in Southwind v Canada and the Ontario Court of Appeal in Stirrett v Cheema on the latter.
• The chapter on rectification incorporates the Supreme Court’s decision in Canada v Fairmont Hotels.


As with past editions, the new edition is designed to provide judges, practitioners, and students an accessible but comprehensive review of all the relevant cases on equitable remedies, as well as give context and analysis of the history and methods of equity in the common law of remedies.
