Summary "This book deals with two effective civil litigation tools used in cases of fraud. A Mareva injunction, also referred to as an "asset preservation order," is a court order that prevents or limits a defendant from dealing with or disposing of some or all of his assets. The Anton Piller order, or "search order" or "evidence preservation order," allows a plaintiff to search the defendant's home or business to seize and preserve documents and other evidence.
