Knock knock. Who’s there? The Police. Join us for our Dawn Raid seminars nationwide UK

Print Friendly

Following the success of our Dawn Raid seminar last autumn in London we are rolling out a series of Dawn Raid seminars across the UK.

Would your receptionist know what to do if the trap is sprung and investigators appeared at your  offices with a search warrant?

Who would he/she call?  The Directors?  They’ve already been arrested at home.

Join us at our Dawn Raid seminars

The Financial Services Authority increasingly uses dawn raids to gather evidence and HMRC and competition authorities use raids as part of their investigative tool kit.

It is likely that the SFO will ramp up raid activity under the direction of the new Director David Green CB QC.  It recently undertook dawn raids when arresting the LIBOR traders at home.

Raids are a key tool for an investigator and what happens in the so-called ‘golden hour’ of a raid can shape an investigation.

Join us on when we will highlight key issues with experts from our corporate crime and internal investigations practice.

Our team are experts in Dawn Raids and have plenty of experience of guiding clients through the traumatic experience of one.

We will share key tips with you.

The chance of a dawn raid is statistically low.

So is the likelihood that your place of work will burn to the ground.  We still have fire drills.  Details of our seminars and a link to register are below.  We look forward to welcoming you.
