Combating Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing

Fee Earner Update 

This course covers the six key compliance principles for fee earners:
  • The Risk Principle part 1: client ID. Screening for situations of enhanced CDD.
  • The Risk Principle part 2: matter risk. Fee earner responsibility for checking on beneficial interests and nature and purpose of the instructions.
  • Privilege part 1: Taking instructions and the duty to disclose.
  • Privilege part 2: Effecting the instructions and doing the deal: the need for client consents to disclosures
  • When privilege breaks down: the right approach to the need for technical disclosures
  • When a disclosure is needed or has been made: what can/must we tell the clients, other advisers and the other side?
