Practiced Money Laundering Solicitor - Legal requirements
Under anti-money laundering regulations, our money laundering solicitor need to be sure of your identity and source of assets before we can take on your case.
- you will need to give us evidence of your identity, such as your driving licence or passport, even if we already know you. We will also need you to give us a document showing your permanent address, for example an ESB or telephone bill or a bank statement.
Source of assets
- any funds or property that you ask our firm to deal with must have been legally obtained. If we become aware or suspect that these assets come from an illegal source, we must notify the Gardaí and the Revenue Commissioners without telling you, except in limited circumstances. We will immediately stop acting for you if we have to report illegal assets.
Even when we are not obliged to report to the authorities, we cannot transfer any assets or property funded by the proceeds of crime. This includes funds that have not been declared for tax purposes or that have been obtained by false means. In this situation, you would have to legalise your position before we could act on your behalf.
For more information, see the Law Society leaflet - Money Laundering in Dublin: Your money laundering Solicitor and You, available upon request.
