When should i consult a solicitor in the case of a DTI investigation?

The Department of Trade and Industry investigators have arrived at my business and have a warrant to search the offices. They are looking for material related to the export of products which might be used as weapons and which were delivered to the Middle East. I know that the products were for pacific purposes, what should I do?

Contact a solicitor with experience of this situation. The Forbes Business Crime team will assist immediately and answer your request to attend your business premises or offices. Do not try to deal with the situation without consulting a solicitor, even if you believe that you have the relevant export licence as situations such as this could result in a 7 year prison sentence if charges are brought and convictions follow.
