As the SRA maintain their unremitting pressure on law firms to ensure we are doing all we can to counter money laundering, terrorism and proliferation financing, the AML regime continues to intensify.

With increased attention focussed not only on practice-wide risk assessments, client and matter risk assessments, source of wealth and source of funds enquiries (and increasingly the obligation to get corroborative proof of what we are told) as well as paying special regard to the sanctions position generally, the burdens on us all continue to mount.

Couple that with a six-figure fine imposed on a major law firm for failure to carry out things properly in matters carried out in 2017 and 2018 - and the future looks grim indeed.

Presented by expert speaker Trevor Hellawell, this webinar will ensure that law firm staff are up to date with the latest AML developments.
