The following CLE program is offered by the New-York Historical Society’s Planned Giving Advisory Council
How likely is it that you are unwittingly assisting a client in money laundering or terrorist financing? It may seem far-fetched, but the U.S. legal profession is under intense pressure to embrace anti-money laundering requirements that apply to banks and other financial institutions.
In an engaging conversation, the expert panel will discuss and review the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) guidance aimed at U.S. “Gatekeepers,” the legislative and regulatory efforts to impose anti-money laundering requirements on the legal profession, a new ethics opinion on Gatekeeper issues, and publications produced by legal bar associations to assist lawyers and others in detecting and preventing money laundering and to grasp when to decline or terminate representation. This program benefits lawyers, accountants, trust company service providers, foundations, and other fiduciaries.
