Anti-money laundering (AML)

Anti-Money Laundering Solicitors In Manchester And London

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) is the process of converting illegally obtained money into legal money. Money laundering sentences are taken seriously, the penalties for this type of offence can be a fine or up to 14 years imprisonment. Contact us to find out how we can help if you or your business is under investigation for money laundering.


Typically, the money laundering process includes 3 stages: Placement, Layering and Integration.

  1. Placement – this is when the “dirty money” is disguised by being placed into the legitimate financial system.
  2. Layering– this is when someone hides the source of money through a series of transaction and accounting tricks.
  3. Integration –the “dirty money” is absorbed into the economy, the criminal can now use the “dirty money” as it appears to be a legitimate source.

If you have been accused of money laundering, it is essential to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Our expert team can offer support and expertise such as:

  • Directing you through the investigation/ claim process
  • Gathering evidence
  • Consulting external professionals

Most frequent questions and answers

Solicitors have a duty to conduct AML checks in conveyancing under the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds Regulations 2017. AML checks are required to prevent money laundering and to check that the funds are from a legitimate source.

We initially ask clients to advise us on how they are funding the property purchase and request at least 6 months bank statements to identify the source of funds. Upon review of the initial documents requested we may ask for further evidence such as further bank statements, payslips to confirm salary payments, dividend vouchers and personal tax returns to confirm dividend payments etc.

Any suspected money laundering activity will be reported to the firms Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO) who will conduct an internal report. The MLRO will then decide whether or not to file a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) to the National Crime Agency (NCA).
