Compulsory document / information request
As far as compulsory document or information production is
concerned it is imperative to be advised by a team who can
explain the procedures and advise on the scope of the request
and its potential impact in relation to both civil and criminal law.
For example, former directors of companies in liquidation can
find themselves attending compulsory interviews conducted
by the liquidator or office holder. Information obtained using
compulsory powers such as under s235 or s236 of Insolvency
Act 1986 can have implications in relation to criminal
investigations. Likewise a trustee in bankruptcy has wide
ranging powers which may involve investigating trusts and
interviewing family members.
Raid on Premises
A raid may take place at your home or at your business
premises. This can be a very traumatic and disconcerting
experience. We can be there immediately to advise you on
what is happening, liaise with the officers carrying out the raid,
and ensure that they are acting within their powers and that
anything seized is within the scope of any warrant or order.
