Preparing for the SRA’s money laundering clampdown
Every law firm must have proactive and preventative measures in place to combat money laundering, and Insight Legal Enterprise’s integration with market leading compliance solutions from Veriphy prove that your Anti Money Laundering (AML) checks are much more than a tick box exercise.
AML compliance relates to identification and verification of users of your firms’ legal services and being assured that the person claiming a particular identity is in fact the person with that actual identity - it is about being confident that the same person can pay for services received with money that hasn’t been procured illegally.
AML compliance has been made more challenging during the last 18 months. Changing ways of operating, with home- and hybrid-working, made necessary by the pandemic, posed greater risks relating to AML.
This webinar is suitable for;
- Compliance Officers, Practice Managers, Solicitors, Partners and other Support Staff within a law firm who are responsible for setting and following processes for onboarding new clients
We will discuss;
- What are your obligations for SRA compliance on AML
- Traditional document checking v electronic tools
- What improvements Law Firms are looking to make to ensure compliance and efficiency
