City of London lawyers reminded of anti-money laundering duties with new stunt

Reverse graffiti has sprung up across central London to offer lawyers a helping hand with anti-money laundering (AML) procedures. Created by First AML, the global anti–money laundering scaleup, the stunt focuses on law firms that prioritise manual, outdated AML processes that put their firms at risk of fines and reputational damage.

The messages were posted near Bank, Fleet Street, Liverpool St and other central London locations, including outside the Salesforce Tower, Arthur Cox London, and Osborne Clarke. With the Treasury currently reviewing the UK’s AML/CFT regulatory and supervisory regime, it’s critical that legal professionals are supported in the city and beyond.

Simon Luke, UK Country Manager at First AML, commented: “Law firms of all sizes undertake anti-money laundering procedures every day. However, many are still using manual, inefficient processes when it comes to onboarding clients. Criminals are continuing to become increasingly sophisticated in the way they launder money, and unless law firms are embracing the most robust technologies to tackle this, then they are opening up their firm to fines. It’s time to take AML seriously.”

The news comes alongside the launch of Source, First AML’s new offering designed to revolutionise anti-money laundering workflows for compliance professionals and teams. The new platform offers an unrivalled choice for organisations with complex or multinational onboarding requirements, delivering streamlined collaboration and ensuring AML consistency.
