The Law Society has published guidance for litigators following an increase in the instances of money laundering and fraud in litigation. This is thought to be due to the fact that some law firms take a more relaxed approach to client due diligence in this area since the provision of legal advice and the conduct of litigation are not covered by the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 (see Bowman v Fels). The guidance is available at http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/newsandevents/news/view=newsarticle.law?NEWSID=426168.
