Amicus has an established expertise in Special Investigative Means (SIMs), the deployment of covert techniques.

We are regularly called upon to give guidance and training in relation to the UK’s Regulation of Investigatory powers Act (RIPA) 2000 and to the creation of legal frameworks and adoption of best practices in a wide range of common law and civil law jurisdictions.

We have written widely on legal issues relevant to the deployment of SIMs, human rights considerations for decision makers and those authorising SIMs, the challenges that arise and practical guidance for investigators, prosecutors and judges.
