MONEY LAUNDERING AND SANCTIONS
We have substantial experience acting for clients facing money laundering investigations and prosecutions.
This has included acting for employees of a UK high street bank involved in a US sanctions investigation and we have dealt with challenges to EU sanctions arising out of events in Ukraine. We have dealt with money laundering investigations conducted by the police, National Crime Agency and the Financial Conduct Authority.
We also provide practical compliance advice about anti-money laundering legislation to professional firms, professional bodies and corporate clients. One of our partners is the author of the Money Laundering chapter in “Fraud: Criminal Law & Procedure” published by Oxford University Press and we were consulted by the Law Commission as part of its assessment of the current legislation.
