As working from home has become commonplace in many companies, DG COMP expects to more frequently assert its powers to raid private homes to collect evidence of antitrust infringement. On April 5, the Commission announced it had "smoothly" raided (in DG COMP’s Maria Jaspers’ words) a private home where sensitive evidence related to a suspected cartel was allegedly held. Please refrain from speed-dialling your general counsel for a moment, while we tell you more about the background of such inspections, and provide you with some coping strategies, au cas où.
