The authors bring together the different areas of the law that come under the title "fraud," from substantive causes of action – common law, restitutionary and equitable claims, and claims emerging under legislation – to remedies, building on a wealth of experience in litigating fraud cases. It covers the complete range of procedural swords and shields available in fraud action, including freezing orders, proprietary and other injunctions, search warrants, receivership, ancillary orders, and the increasingly popular contempt jurisdiction.

This book helps you grasp the specifics of today's litigation practise by offering samples of legal papers, such as writ, statement of claim, originating summons, affidavit in support, and pertinent orders, so that readers are familiar with the documents they will face. Each sample is accompanied by extensive annotations that clarify the text. Civil Litigation in Malaysia: A Practical Guide to Preparing Pleadings is based entirely on the Rules of Court 2012 and allows prospective varsity students, chambering pupils, and young attorneys to swiftly learn the foundations of drafting pleadings.
