Quasi Lien Law and Legal Definition

Quasi lien is a lien not arising under contract or directly under statute, but existing by way of provisional relief obtained in an action, such as an attachment lien. By virtue of a writ of attachment against a defendant debtor, the creditor and the attaching deputy acquire a quasi lien thereon. [Meyers v. C. I. T. Corp., 132 Conn. 284 (Conn. 1945)]
