TOPIC: Anti-Money Laundering: Essential Training for Service Providers

All solicitors of Hong Kong, including foreign lawyers practising in Hong Kong, should be aware of their statutory anti-money laundering obligations. In-house counsels are no exception. Practice Direction P (“PD P”), as issued by the Law Society of Hong Kong, requires compliance with AML duties including but not limited to client identification and verification, client due diligence (simplified and enhanced), record keeping, and awareness and training.

In this seminar, the speakers will cover the following topics:

  • Latest Trends and Developments
  • Hong Kong Anti-Money Laundering Legal Framework and Guidelines
  • Case Studies
  • Practical Suggestions and Tips for an Effective AML

In-house counsels are highly encouraged to attend this seminar for multiple benefits including:

  • A way to help satisfy their requirement to receive AML training under PDP;
  • A reminder of the relevant domestic anti-money laundering legislations and regulations;
  • Avoid potential pitfalls/common mistakes and avoid being implicated in money laundering;
  • Opportunity to stay ahead of time and be updated of any current AML developments (in particular the consultation on enhancing Anti-Money Laundering Regulation of Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions); and
  • In-depth discussion involving practitioners of W. K. To with valuable insights in the AML field.
