Peters & Peters has detailed knowledge of the laws, regulations and policies relating to money laundering in the context of the UK and overseas. We frequently advise those subject to investigation for money laundering offences.
We also assist companies and professionals to understand and comply with their obligations under the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regime. This includes assessing whether a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) should be filed, the tipping-off provisions, evaluating AML policies, procedures, systems and controls, and making recommendations for enhancement. Our clients include professional individuals, financial institutions, law firms, accounting firms, estate agencies and governments.
Where a company suspects a breach may have occurred, we can conduct an investigation and advise on remediation.
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.
