Anti Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing 

The risks for business associated with increased enforcement of AML laws are growing daily. We help multinational financial institutions and other companies navigate the legal, business, and regulatory AML requirements. We provide specialized knowledge and the latest practical insights into a wide range of operational, technological and regulatory issues surrounding the AML environment.

How can we assist?

If you have any doubt whether the procedures in place at your company comply with the legal requirements, we will help evaluate them and propose changes to protect your company against regulatory risks. We offer to:

  • Draft a new AML/CTF policy, or review and supplement the existing AML/CTF policy to adapt to the new regulations
  • Build an adequate AML/CTF compliance system 
  • Support the alignment of technical tools and technology used to meet AML/CTF obligations 
  • Prepare inquiries to GIIF seeking interpretation of the rules
  • Apply AML/CTF solutions used in other jurisdictions, adapting them to local requirements
  • Prepare managers on how to deal with an AML/CTF inspection by regulators
  • Represent the client in administrative proceedings before GIIF on imposition of penalties 
  • Represent the client in criminal proceedings for non-compliance with statutory obligations
  • Train staff of obligated institutions on compliance with their statutory obligations.

Why Eversheds Sutherland 

We are distinguished by many years of practical experience preparing and implementing AML/CTF procedures at obligated institutions. We can tailor the AML/CTF policy to suit your specific business model. We offer comprehensive support, from development of the policy through implementation, preparation for inspections, and, if needed, representation in post-audit proceedings and consultation on implementation of selected AML/CTF duties.

We know what, when and how an obligated institution must act, and how it should adapt its procedures to business conditions, product characteristics and the sector in which it operates. We have experience in communications with GIIF and the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF). We understand the regulators’ requirements and know how to fulfil them.

We offer our clients the support of specialists with a proven record of implementing numerous projects for leading companies in the financial sector and unique experience in training on the framework of international structures.
