Money Laundering Cases - Forensic Accounting
Our team of forensic accountants are regularly instructed to assist in the defence of alleged money laundering offences arising out of criminal investigations.
Money laundering takes place when the proceeds of a criminal activity are transformed into seemingly legitimate gains or assets. The process essentially ‘cleans’ the gains made from criminal activity and can be conducted by a number of methods, which can be simple or highly complex.
The laundering of money usually takes place by:
- Placement – when proceeds of crime are fed into financial circulation.
- Layering – when money is moved through a chain of financial transactions.
- Integration – when money is invested, for example, through buying property.
Money Laundering Cases
If your client is being investigated for suspected money laundering offences it is essential that you instruct a forensic accountant at the earliest possible opportunity to assist in the defence of the case.
Confiscation of assets cases are generally linked to money laundering offences following Proceeds of Crime investigations. We are also able to assist by applying our forensic accounting expertise in confiscation cases.
**We are happy to undertake work in this area at Legal Aid rates.
