Judicial and non-judicial authorities have considerable powers with respect to dawn raids. These vary from searching the premises and demanding information to taking samples on the spot. It is extremely important for you to obtain immediate legal advice and assistance, so that you are aware of your rights and obligations.
Legal assistance in the event of dawn raids and searches
Imagine that the judicial and non-judicial authorities come knocking at the door of your company in the early morning. What should you do? Our lawyers at Ploum can immediately advise you on the course of action you should take during the proceedings, and we will ensure in situ that the authorities do not impede your business operations more than necessary during a dawn raid. For example, our main priority is to make sure that the authorities do not confiscate any company-sensitive information that does not fall within the scope of the investigation. We can also set up a tailor-made procedure for your company (‘dawn raid procedure’) as a reception facility for the authorities, and we will inform your staff in this respect if you wish. It goes without saying that we will also advise and assist you if the dawn raid or search results in criminal proceedings.
