As part of our broader competition investigations work, we have considerable experience advising clients under investigation, including in dawn raids.
If you need support in the event of a dawn raid, or if you would simply like to ensure that your business is prepared in the eventuality of a dawn raid, contact one of our team for assistance.
We also offer more general advice on managing a crisis, for example, a crisis line with 24 hour support and reputational management e.g. advice on press announcements and public messaging (if a client is publicly named as an investigated party) through our 'Resilience' product.
