Money Laundering Solicitors

The law, regulations, practice and procedure around alleged money laundering and anti-money laundering requirements can appear both bewildering and daunting.  

The expert team at Murray Hughman are able to assist those that are under investigation or facing prosecution for money laundering, offering bespoke and tailored advice to meet the needs of our clients and help them to navigate the legal and regulatory minefield.  

Money laundering is the process that turns dirty money into funds that appear lawful and can therefore be spent as if they were from legal sources. Money laundering legitimises the proceeds of crime and allows drug gangs, human traffickers and other criminals to expand and benefit from their operations. Examples of money laundering offences include tax evasion, theft, fraud, bribery, corruption, smuggling, modern slavery, human trafficking, drug trafficking and illegal arms sales.   

In UK law money laundering is defined within the Proceeds of Crimes Act 2002 (POCA) as “the process by which the proceeds of crime are converted into assets which appear to have a legitimate origin, so that they can be retained permanently or recycled into further criminal enterprises”. 

Money laundering can be broken down into two categories: 

  • Those who commit offences and then launder the proceeds of those criminal offences.  
  • Those whose only criminal involvement is to launder the proceeds of crime committed by others. 

Money laundering is a broad, wide ranging and ever-expanding area of law that can have implications for all businesses, individuals and professionals. 

Money Laundering is governed by a complex legal framework primarily under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002 and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 and the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 that require businesses, individuals and professionals to understand and comply with the Regulations in terms of risk, compliance and diligence.   

Whilst non-compliance can attract severe penalties, the law also places positive obligations on organisations to have systems and controls in place to mitigate money laundering and report suspicious activities to the prosecuting authorities. His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs and the Financial Conduct Authority utilise draconian anti-money laundering requirements that can result in financial penalties and prosecution if they are not met.  

An investigation into money laundering or a failure to report suspected money laundering can have significant implications for your business’s reputation, financial position and should criminal prosecution follow, even your freedom. It is imperative therefore that expert advice is sought from our specialised money laundering lawyers at the outset of any money laundering investigation.
