Search and Seizure

Search and seizure operations are carried out when powers are granted permitting the searching of premises, with the goal of finding and seizing materials relevant to an investigation. If you find yourself the target of such searches - commonly named dawn raids - immediate legal advice can make a very important difference.

Our highly experienced legal team will instruct you on the best course of action to take. We can recommend the best ways to deal with certain issues, such as what to do if you require the seized materials for your day-to-day work. We act on behalf of individuals, companies, partnerships and large corporations where they require 24-hour on-site crisis management in cases involving dawn raids.

The Private Client Criminal Law Service from JMW offers a dedicated service to clients who want the very best legal assistance to guide them through difficult periods such as these. Our bespoke offering is designed for professionals and corporate clients, allowing us to provide a more focused and tailored service every step of the way. Given the complex nature of search and seizure cases, clients will find the ability to liaise with experienced and high-achieving solicitors invaluable.

It is common in raids for computers and computer material to be taken. Our legal team includes forensic technology specialists who can advise on how to deal with the recovery of hardware and data, especially if you require these items for work purposes. However, we are also able to offer advice in various other ways. These include:

  • Representation following arrest

  • Assistance with employment concerns

  • Personal and corporate reputational management

  • Corporate recovery and personal insolvency

  • Corporate and commercial litigation

The seizure of cash can be particularly distressing for the person involved. The aim of such action is to either prevent a person from benefitting from a crime or using money in an illegal way. However, being the target of this action can have serious financial and personal consequences. Obtaining the right legal advice is therefore essential.
