Money Laundering

Money Laundering is a far reaching term.

We often think of money laundering as cleaning ‘dirty’ money from crime. However, offences of money laundering cover much more.

'Criminal property' is that which the defendant has gained from his crime, so is much more than simply money. It is often stolen or illegal property of any kind. The prosecutor will often favour money laundering as the offence to be charged, as it is generally easier to prove than alternative offences.

It is essential therefore that specialist lawyers are instructed to deal with such matters from an early stage.
