Our team of forensic accountants assist criminal solicitors and barristers across the UK in the defence of criminal investigations into alleged money laundering offences.
Money laundering takes place when the proceeds of a criminal activity are transformed into seemingly legitimate gains or assets. The process essentially ‘cleans’ the gains made from criminal activity and can be conducted by a number of methods, which can be simple or highly complex.

During criminal investigations into allegations of money laundering offences, the following is usually considered:
- Placement – when proceeds of crime are fed into financial circulation.
- Layering – when money is moved through a chain of financial transactions.
- Integration – when money is invested, for example, through buying property.
Money Laundering Offences
If your client is facing a criminal investigation or has been charged with suspected money laundering offences it is essential that you instruct a forensic accountant at the earliest possible opportunity to analyse the financial evidence in order to assist in the defence of the case.
Confiscation of assets cases are generally linked to money laundering offences following Proceeds of Crime (POCA) investigations. We are also able to assist by applying our forensic accounting expertise in Confiscation cases.
We are happy to undertake work in this area at Legal Aid rates and to discuss quotes.
