A joint campaign by the Home Office and organisations such as the Law Society aims to raise professionals’ awareness of the warning signs of money laundering

21 December 2015

Flag It Up, which has just begun, intends to offer advice and assistance to accountants and solicitors so they spot indicators of criminal activity.

The campaign, which runs until March 2016, will publish case studies giving examples of how solicitors have unwittingly become involved in money laundering.

While it is a worthy effort to help such professionals, it remains to be seen how effective it proves to be. Many professionals – solicitors included – may find it more worthwhile to seek expert legal advice tailored to them to avoid becoming embroiled in business crime.
