Taking a look
AT The LSAG AML Guidance

On 20 January 2021, the Legal Sector Affinity Group (LSAG) published their long awaited draft AML Guidance.

At first glance, it’s a substantial re-write. The chapters have been re-organised, with more practical guidance, but there is one very important change, which you can see in the first few pages.

This guidance sets out the Regulator’s expectations and many examples of what is considered good practice. But note, if you don’t want to do something that you’re advised that you “should” do, you’ll need to be prepared to explain why not.

How can Teal Compliance help?

As a result of these changes, Teal have prepared the following to help law firms:

Independent Audit

The SRA’s risk outlook recently made clear that it expected most firms to have had an independent audit of their policies, controls and procedures. Whilst you don’t have to bring in an external auditor, many firms won’t have internal resources suitable to qualify. 

We’ve been running these since 2017, so have a great deal of experience in reviewing and testing AML compliance frameworks. Prices depend on the size and nature of your firm. Each audit takes at least 5 days, so capacity is limited.

Please get in touch as soon as possible if you’d like to book in.
