While the concept of ‘money laundering’ as a criminal offence has only entered the public consciousness in recent years, its development internationally goes back several decades. Peters & Peters have been at the forefront of that development, advising business professionals on compliance, defending those charged with offences, and contributing to the refinement of the law.
We combine our internationally renowned criminal litigation skills with a deep understanding of UK anti-money laundering law and policy, to provide:
Our litigation expertise means that our advice is not just theoretically correct; it is flavoured by a deep understanding of the practical obstacles clients face in everyday business, and how they may ultimately be played out in court. We have advised clients on taking proactive steps to avoid potentially costly litigation that sometimes follows the making of a disclosure, and regularly guide both individual and corporate clients through the minefield of disclosure, anti-money laundering and anti-tipping off legislation.
Our team includes David McCluskey, partner in the Business Crime Team, who has contributed to numerous publications on the subject of anti-money laundering, and sat on consultation sub-committees for both the Law Society and the LCCSA, and Michael O’Kane, author of “The Law of Criminal Cartels” Oxford University Press 2009.
