Whether you are an individual or corporate, operating in the money laundering regulated sector or not, we can guide you through the money laundering regime from an AML compliance perspective or advise if you are concerned you may be in breach of the offences or regulations.
We also advise if your regulator has commenced an enquiry and requests information from you or if you are under investigation for money laundering offences. We deal regularly with regulators and law enforcement.
From a compliance perspective, we advise on all aspects – such as drafting internal policies or if you need to design, review or improve your internal AML and financial crime systems and controls, as well as training programs or assisting with customer due diligence.
Finally if you suspect money laundering, we can advise you on your reporting obligations and how manage the risk of ‘tipping off’.
