Our annual AML roadshow is coming to a town near you this autumn!
An ever-increasing focus on anti-money laundering (AML) controls within the legal profession has seen the introduction of greatly enhanced requirements and responsibilities for both the Law Society and Scottish solicitors. It is vital that you fully understand the new AML regulations and what they mean for you and your firm.
Our AML roadshow will provide a full briefing on your responsibilities, as well as addressing any implications the regulations may have on client work. The agenda includes a highly interactive case study - facilitated by the Law Society’s AML team - which explores how to apply the regulations in a real life example of money being laundered through a legal firm.
We will also explore the risks inherent in providing Trust and Company Services to clients and when and how to successfully submit a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) or apply for a “Defence Against Money Laundering” (DAML).
Secure your place now to understand how to comply, spot warning signs and mitigate risks, as well as the opportunity to discuss and debate the issues with the Law Society’s Head of Anti-Money Laundering, wider AML team and other experts in the field.
At this event you will gain:
- Knowledge of the new AML regulations and what they mean for you and your firm
- Understanding of your AML responsibilities and the role of the Society
- How to develop a Firm Risk Assessment and the practical application of a ‘risk-based approach’ to AML compliance
- How to successfully submit a SAR, or apply for a DAML
- Insight into the possible AML risks of setting up company structures or managing trusts on behalf of clients
