Dawn Raids

Regulators may conduct unexpected searches to investigate potentially anti-competitive activities. These are commonly referred to as ‘dawn raids’.

We assist our clients by ensuring that the raid is conducted with decency and order, within the ambit of the law. Our job is to ensure that the investigator conducting the dawn raid is being shadowed and to keep accurate records of each and every item which the investigator takes, copies and inspects.

We assist our clients by:​

      • ​providing comprehensive dawn raid training (including conducting mock dawn raids) to ensure that a company is fully prepared and its employees are aware of their rights during this invasive process; and
      • providing assistance during a dawn raid and with the related investigations thereafter.
