We have recently introduced a Dawn Raids app. The app provides practical information on what to do and what not to do during a dawn raid by the European Commission, the ACM, DNB, the AFM, the CPB or the Dutch Public Prosecution Service.

According to Patrick Ploeger, partner at De Brauw and one of the initiators of the app, “Clients want to prepare as well as possible for a dawn raid. A lot can be at stake, and during the hectic moments of a dawn raid, many things can go wrong. This app is an answer to our clients’ needs to have a clear overview of the process of a dawn raid and shows who should do what at what time.”


The app shows you what to do during a dawn raid and what follow-up steps to take after the raid. The app also provides practical instructions to receptionists and IT specialists at organisations undergoing a dawn raid and guidance on how to answer potential questions and on supplying confidential information. In addition, the app contains contact details of dawn raid specialists of our firm who can assist during a dawn raid.


The app is available for iOS and Android
