12th Anti-money laundering compliance for law firms

A session at 12th Anti-money laundering compliance for law firms

Who better to help you identify what smells bad than someone who advises on and appears in multi-million pound money laundering cases in court?

Sought out by many for his forensic skills and thorough analysis of complex, paper-heavy cases, Robert Rinder, a barrister at 2 Hare Court, also appears in cases involving regulatory allegations against businesses and their directors and officers and has been instructed by HM Government to prosecute allegations of bribery; international corruption and fraud in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Robert is better known to many as the star of ITV television programme ‘Judge Rinder’.

On 24th February, you can benefit from both his investigatory skills and his courtroom style, in person, as he reveals the sort of things you need to look out for when you suspect money laundering activity.

While our other speakers aren’t television stars, yet, you can expect the usual quality. Steve Wilmott, Director of Intelligence and Investigations at the SRA will explain what you need to do to keep the regulator (and the NCA) happy. While Chair of The Law Society’s Money Laundering Task Force, Amy Bell, will represent the lobbying work of the professional body.

Sue Mawdsley of Legal Risk and Suzie Ogilvie of Freshfields will take you through an in-depth interactive scenario based learning session, using both IBA guidance and FATF red flags to help you fine-tune your judgement and your reporting.

And Alison Matthews, Director of Quality and Risk at Shoosmiths, will help you get your firm equipped to comply with the forthcoming European 4th Directive.

New for 2016 we are exploring what constitutes ‘tipping off’; the Persons of Significant Control regime (PSC); tax evasion and avoidance and current case studies from the hot potato that is the UK property market; as well as the latest in global sanctions.

Standard: GBP 595
