The most important and immediate strategy for dealing with the possibility of a future search/seizure or on-site raid of your business is knowing what to expect and having a game plan. Just as you plan for employee grievances by providing a procedure in your employee handbook, you should have a plan for how to deal with a visit from your friendly industry regulators, the Attorney General’s consumer protection watchdogs, the INS, the FTC, the IRS, the USPS Postal Inspector, or a civil investigation proceeding spearheaded by FINRA or another trade and commerce or enforcement agency. When business is humming along and no storm clouds loom on the horizon, you should sit down and your business law attorney and craft a game plan for how to handle a potential investigation, search/seizure, or on-site raid so as to minimize disruption to business and revenues.
