CPD accredited firm Fraser and Fraser invite you to attend ‘AML Guidance for the Legal Sector 2021′

Legal Eye’s Senior Compliance and Regulatory Specialist, Norman Denton, discusses the latest Anti Money-Laundering Guidance and what it means for law firms. Norman will look to give firms guidance as to what they may need to address and why, perhaps leading to a workable action plan to review existing Policies, Controls and Procedures. We will also look at implications the Guidance poses for Client & Matter Risk Assessment, resultant Due Diligence and in particular Staff Training.
