COMPLIANCE - ANTI MONEY LAUNDERING AND BRIBERY
The White Collar Crime Group provides pragmatic solutions and expert advice to law firms and businesses, both in the regulated sector and more widely. We can provide assistance with anti-money laundering compliance and training, and help ensure systems are in place in all areas, from ‘Know Your Client’ to advice on how to recognise and deal with potentially unlawful transactions.
With the ever increasing responsibility on individuals and businesses and the emphasis in the 2007 Money Laundering Regulations on the application of risk-based approaches, compliance procedures are critical to avoid criminal sanctions for non-complaince and negligence. We can advise on dealing with the conflict between the regulatory requirements and the need to protect business, and how to deal with issues of client confidentiality.
Members can also provide compliance and procedural advice on the Bribery Act 2010 including providing organisations with business specific corporate audits and then tailor made training, due diligence and compliance tool-kits. Chambers is able to offer a rapid response service to assist with interpretation of the Act, advice on risk, potential breaches, systems failures and self-referral.
Chambers can also offer compliance packages either on a public access basis or jointly with selected specialist firms of solicitors.
