DAC Beachcroft invites you to a breakfast briefing on Anti-Money Laundering and the practical steps that organisations can take to reduce the risk of money laundering through or within their businesses.

The high profile Panama Papers and Paradise Papers data leaks in 2016 and 2017 exposed the complex financial structures and off-shore activities of some of the world's richest people and companies, and related issues such as money-laundering, corruption, terrorism and tax evasion became news headlines. Governments around the globe have since responded by adopting increasingly robust measures to close tax loop-holes and counter money-laundering.

Our guest speaker, Rose Chapman, author of Anti-Money Laundering: A Practical Guide to Reducing Organisational Risk, will offer practical guidance on how organisations can develop AML and compliance systems and controls which can keep pace with an increasingly complex and technological world where criminals introduce new money laundering tactics on a regular basis.

Rose will be joined by Partners from our Banking and Financial Disputes Litigation and Regulatory Compliance teams, who will also discuss:

  • The latest decisions from the Financial Conduct Authority and the Serious Fraud Office including coverage of the recent Skansen Interiors Limited case, which tested for the first time the "adequate procedures" defence under s7 of the Bribery Act 2010
  • The Financial Guidance and Claims Act 2018 – the Act will see the creation of a new Single Financial Guidance Body to provide free, impartial financial and debt advice, and more stringent regulation of claims management companies.

There will be Q&As and open discussion.
