Anti-Money-Laundering

What is Anti-Money-Laundering

The prevention of money laundering (anti-money-laundering, AML) has been part of compliance management systems (CMS) for a long time. It is of particular importance to the addressees of the German Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz, GwG), among which are numerous companies from the financial services sector, as well as insurance companies and sports betting agents and operators.

The development of an effective AML-regime, which is in line with the multifarious requirements of the German Money Laundering Act, is complicated by the frequent amendments to the governing laws. Our advisors can assist you with identifying the applicable legal provisions and their correct application. This includes drawing up or checking risk assessments, drafting AML-regulations and training employees, as well as reporting suspicions. Our advisors are also available as external money laundering officers.

If you have doubts concerning the money-laundering compliance of individual transactions or business relations, we can counsel you on the existing risks. Should the time for preventive measures already have passed, our experts advisors are also available for taking over your defence.
