Practising Law Institute
Event Details
May 2019
8:00 AM - 12:15 PM ET

The issue of true beneficial ownership of legal entities is perhaps the most critical anti-money laundering (AML) issue today, both in the U.S. and abroad. Globally, AML and money laundering scandals are arising in Europe, Asia, and South America. These cases involve unique legal challenges and inevitably will impact financial institutions and individuals.

Peter Hardy, a partner and Team Leader of the firm's AML Team, will moderate several panel discussions on the following topics:

  • Why you and your clients need to worry about money laundering and AML/CFT compliance.
  • Offshore entities, shell companies, and trusts – who are you really doing business with?
  • "Hot topics" in AML: the move to reduce and improve the regulatory regime, the cannabis industry and financial services, and digital currencies.
  • How cases abroad can affect U.S. financial institutions and DOJ enforcement, and what lessons U.S. financial institutions can learn.
