Dawn raids

A&L Goodbody's EU, Competition & Procurement team is the most experienced dawn raid team in Ireland. Our team has experience in all three types of dawn raids in Ireland dealing with dawn raids by:

  • the European Commission
  • the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) and, historically, the Competition Authority
  • the Irish competition agency working with another EU Member State competition agency in Ireland under Article 22 of Regulation 1/2003

We have the most experienced team of all law firms in Ireland having undertaken dawn raids since the mid-1990s. 

Our routines and procedures are well-established for dealing with single and multi-day raids. We have the necessary depth and range of expertise and experience with three full-time competition partners and a team of associates who are experienced in advising clients in a practical and knowledgeable way during unannounced and announced inspections.
