On Friday 25 March, Maria Cronin will give anti-money laundering training to a group of Bulgarian lawyers. The training is delivered as part of the ongoing partnership between the Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA) and the Sofia Bar Association, Bulgaria.

Maria has extensive experience in high profile international corruption and money laundering cases. Her successes include securing the discharge of a US$23m restraint order, where it was held that there had been material non-disclosure by the Crown.

In 2014, she was appointed co-President of the Criminal Commission of the UIA. Created in 1927, the UIA brings together over 2,000 individual members and 200 bar, federation and association members, from more than 110 countries.
