We also assist clients in developing anti-money laundering strategies, training and guidance to ensure compliance with professional obligations, national and international legislation.
We have delivered tailored anti-money laundering training to global financial institutions and advised entities outside the jurisdiction on the UK anti-money laundering regime and compliance programmes.
The majority of our corporate Money Laundering work is for major financial institutions with a footprint in the UK. Due to the highly specialised nature of our practice, the possibility of us being conflicted is much reduced.
Fulcrum Chambers is one of very few firms who have a real expertise in corporate white-collar defence and compliance processes. This comprehensive expertise allows them to provide a pragmatic, tailored advice to companies on compliance processes, as they are able to draw from their expertise in criminal defence.
