It is no longer uncommon to deal with a sudden and unannounced inspection by a regulatory / investigatory authority ("the Authority") to gather evidence linked to a business under investigation. It is a pivotal moment that can significantly influence the trajectory of an investigation and it is not confined to corporate offices. It can extend to premises belonging to suppliers, competitors, and even the residences of employees. 


The initial impression formed by the Authority can have a material impact on the direction of the investigation. Without well-established and clear protocols or training for professionals such as in-house counsel, IT staff, security managers, receptionist, compliance officers, and directors, ("collectively referred to as Professionals") on how to handle the Authority on their arrival and during their raid, you run a real risk of jeopardising your company's daily operations and being liable for possible offences such as obstruction of justice when items and devices are seized.       


With practical training, using scenario-based exercises, you can effectively navigate the unexpected and ensure business continuity. 

SCCA Academy together with Tradekins proudly presents a masterclass tailored for Professionals like you who can expect to confront the Police, Commercial Affairs Department (CAD), the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) or the Competition, Singapore Customs or the Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) during an unexpected and sudden raid.

What do people say about the trainer and his courses:

 Gives the "lay of the land" …which is often seen by practitioners and counsel as a nebulous area... The lessons arm us with enough knowledge to know where to look when the matters come up in practice. 

 Communicating the concepts in a practical manner, which can be applied to my practice as an in-house counsel. -Being able to engage the class -The instructor's passion for the subject can be gleaned through his teachings. 

 Very engaging classroom, with a bit of humour, and overall great quality of teaching. The best part is, the usage of many examples, video-sharing. 

 It is practical in reality and the topic covers comprehensively that each legal practitioner would benefit.

 His experience and expertise in the subject that he shared with us have been invaluable.

 Extensive knowledge of cases and enforcement agencies' practices. Prof Jesu is. EXCELLENT.
