About this webinar

In its duty to set and enforce high professional standards, the SRA is increasingly active in clamping down on ill-prepared firms. As of the end of May 2022, the maximum fine the SRA can issue will jump 1,150%, from £2,000 to £25,000.

It’s more important than ever for compliance professionals to be up-to-date with ever-changing regulations. And to be aware of the policies, controls, and procedures to meet them.

In this session, we cover:

  • The current state of AML for UK legal firms

  • The enforcement of AML compliance

  • AML audits: what to expect

  • Digital attacks on analogue processes
