What happens when the government suddenly shows up at your client’s business to seize materials and interview employees? In this Special Report, host Melanie Hallas discusses “dawn raids” with Douglas Tween and James Mutchnik. Together, they discuss what’s at stake in these relatively rare law enforcement actions as well as why it’s important for clients to have a search warrant response protocol so they can act quickly during the first 48 hours in which cases are often won and lost.

Melanie A. Hallas is an associate attorney at McDermott Will & Emery where she practices in antitrust and competition matters representing clients before the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ).

James H. Mutchnik is partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP where he represents corporate and individual clients in antitrust and white collar crime defense matters and related commercial litigation matters in federal and state courts throughout the United States as well as a variety of federal and state investigative agencies.

He represents companies and individuals in white collar criminal and regulatory investigations, with a particular concentration on antitrust and cartel, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), securities, tax, fraud, and money laundering matters.
