Dawn Raids are an increasing feature of corporate life and are most commonly conducted by investigating authorities such as HM Revenue & Customs, the Serious Fraud Office, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Competition & Markets Authority and the National Crime Agency.
The Kangs 24-hour Rapid Response Team consists of ten highly trained and experienced solicitors with a wealth of experience advising corporate and individual clients in relation to all aspects of Dawn Raids. Our team is led by Hamraj Kang, an award-winning solicitor nationally recognised as a leader in the field of financial crime investigations. We have a reputation for securing the best possible results for our clients.
The initial advice provided at the interview under caution stage is key to achieving this result. Seeking early advice and assistance is vitally important in a Dawn Raid. Our Team is experienced in attending Dawn Raids and protecting the rights of corporate and individual clients whilst the investigators conduct their work.
The investigators have the power to speak to staff members individually and ask certain questions regarding their role and knowledge of certain matters.
We are experienced in attending Dawn Raids and liaising with investigators to ensure that:
- Only the relevant members of staff are interviewed,
- An appropriate record of any discussion is maintained, and
- Any inappropriate line of questioning is not pursued
Police officers and certain investigators have the power to arrest individuals during a Dawn Raid. The arrests are usually made on arrival and before a search of the premises is commenced.
The arrested individual(s) will usually be transported to a police station by some of the investigators while the majority of the investigating team remain at the premises to conduct the search and seizure of material. The purpose of the arrest is usually to enable the investigators to conduct an interview under caution with the individual.
The police and other investigators can conduct an ‘interview under caution’ with an individual either on a voluntary basis or under arrest. The latter scenario is likely to apply following a Dawn Raid.
