Legal Bridge can introduce you to legal professionals who can offer full consultation about money laundering issues.
Money Laundering is the process of concealing the origins of illegally obtained money. Typically the allegation will involve transfers from foreign banks or the alleged use of a legitimate business.
The introduction of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (“POCA”) has broadened the definition of money laundering to include the proceeds of any criminal conduct and therefore money laundering could arise from, e.g. a small profit made from a regulatory breach or a minor tax evasion.
This has resulted in companies and individuals having a greater exposure to the risk of prosecution for offences arising out of suspicious financial activity. All persons alleged to be dealing with the proceeds of criminal activity, which may have occurred anywhere in the world, risk prosecution and severe sentences if they knew or should reasonably have suspected that the money or assets they were dealing with represented the proceeds of crime.
Legal Bridge can offer a service that connects people to firms who will represent them in the event that they are accused of such a crime. These firms have vast experience and specialist expertise in all the aspects in dealing with money laundering cases from the police station, upon initial arrest, through to Crown Court proceedings.
