Search Warrants

A search of your home, especially if carried out as part of a raid and when force is used, will often be intrusive and traumatic. A search of your business can be disruptive and damaging to your business’ reputation, and crucial items may be seized.

If you are concerned that the police may have broken the rules around search warrants, we can advise you on the range of options available to you. Apart from a civil claim for damages and a finding of wrongdoing, you may be able to challenge the lawfulness of a search warrant by judicial review. We can also advise you on making a complaint to the police or the IOPC (Independent Office for Police Conduct) to ask for an investigation into what went wrong. We can also advise you on your options if you have suffered as a result of searches carried out by other public bodies, such as the Home Office under immigration powers or the HMRC. If you are financially eligible, legal aid may be available to fund the costs.
