In the international context, anti-money laundering regulations and combating the financing of terrorism are intertwined. These regulations are increasingly becoming stricter and more comprehensive in proportion to the growing international concern with terrorism. In this regard, anti-money laundering measures are one of the key elements of global corporate compliance not only for financial institutions but for all global companies.
We advise on the establishment and development of internal rules and mechanisms for anti-money laundering measures, due diligence for M&A partners in emerging countries, the internal investigation of alleged violations of the relevant regulations, and investigations by the domestic or foreign regulatory authorities.
