Dawn raids, whether in the context of antitrust actions, criminal prosecutions or private civil proceedings, are the realization of a worst-case scenario. Prosecutors and police will severely disrupt business and generate concerns among employees and negative external publicity. Moreover, a dawn raid is often the beginning of long, intense criminal or antitrust investigations or court proceedings against the company and its employees. In this diffi cult situation, both internal and external counsel must make sure to give the right advice - usually at very short notice.
