This week we surveyed a wide range of UK law firms on their approach to AML. The survey explored firms’ biggest AML challenges, different approaches to risk assessments, ongoing monitoring, AML audits and more.

Key findings:

  • The biggest AML challenge is identifying the source of funds/wealth
  • Matter risk assessments are a struggle for 50% of firms
  • 58% of firms carry out independent audits through an external firm
  • 28% of firms feel they wouldn’t be prepared if they received a notification of an SRA visit
  • 64% of firms don’t believe the SRA and Law Society provide enough guidance to help firms stay AML compliant
