London Partner James Marshall and Associate Sonja Hainsworth authored an article published May 22 in Law360 examining the shift in recent years of the Financial Conduct Authority’s use of enforcement investigations and the increase in dawn raids. Marshall and Hainsworth discuss how businesses can prepare themselves for dawn raids and explain that, “The importance of being ‘raid ready,’ and having in place the tools and knowledge needed to implement an effective dawn raid plan cannot be underestimated. In particular, firms should ensure that key personnel likely to come in contact with investigators receive relevant training — not only so that they do not inadvertently obstruct a dawn raid, but also so that they know the limits of an authority’s powers of inspection.”
