UK competition law dawn raids in the "new normal" Are you ready? | ThinkHouse


With UK businesses embracing hybrid working patterns, a typical week for many staff now sees them combining remote working and working from an office location.

But, with competition authorities returning to conduct dawn raids, have your business's dawn raid policies been adapted to address the "new normal" of hybrid working? If they have, would staff know what to do in the event of a dawn raid?

Investigations into suspected infringements of UK competition law can result in significant financial penalties for businesses, as well as director disqualifications, and even criminal sanctions for individuals. Therefore, if a dawn raid takes place, it is critical that businesses are able to respond quickly and effectively.

During this live ThinkHouse webinar, our competition law experts Samuel Beighton and Bernardine Adkins will consider the Competition and Market Authority's powers of investigation, and outline key issues for businesses to have in mind when refreshing their "pre-COVID-19" dawn raid policies to reflect the "new normal" of hybrid working.
