Dawn Raiders - Tomorrow 5.15 pm
The New South Wales Bar Association's Practice Development Committee is pleased to present a webinar titled "Dawn Raiders" at 5.15 pm on Tuesday 20 October 2020.
This practical session is targeted at barristers and in-house counsel and will ask the question "Is your company ready for the unannounced attendance of a corporate regulator or law enforcement authority exercising search & seizure powers?"
We all know that Australian corporate regulators including the ACCC, ASIC, APRA, AUSTRAC and the ATO have wide-ranging powers to compel the production of documents etc by way of notice. However, they also have extensive search and seizure powers which may be invoked without, or with very limited, prior notice: AKA “The Dawn Raid”.
Federal, state and territory law enforcement authorities and the ACC may exercise similar powers, either at the request of a regulator or where independently authorised, for example by way of search warrant. Is your company ready for the unannounced attendance of a corporate regulator or law enforcement authority exercising search & seizure powers?
Join panellists Kate Morgan SC, Patrick Knowles and Theo Dorizac, and moderator David Thomas SC, to discuss how to prepare for a "dawn raid", what to do when investigators arrive and what to do after the investigators have left.
This webinar is co-presented by the NSW Bar Association and the Australian Association of Corporate Counsel. The webinar is open to members of the NSW Bar and ACC and will be run by registration only. Numbers are limited. For further information, or to register for this event, please click here.
