More Effective Financial Crime Compliance for Law Firms


Today, legal firms in the United States are facing growing expectations for Anti-money Laundering (AML), Know Your Client (KYC), and Financial Crime / Counter-terrorism Financing (CTF) compliance — increasingly mirroring the strict standards enforced in international jurisdictions.

As a result, in order to be effective, organizations must invest time and resources by creating and establishing new policies, evaluation processes, and by acquiring the best tools and data available.

Why should your firm upgrade legacy systems?

Legacy   Alternative solution
Repetitive and manual verification checks for potential clients by internal teams Automated screening and verification checks of potential and current clients. Improving efficiency in risk and conflict teams
Complex identification of relevant data – i.e. negative news, political exposed people (PEP) – using public data engines Accurate data about individuals can be found in one central system, allowing for quick and precise results
Ongoing monitoring and management of the additional risk related matter data for any relevant changes requiring re-evaluating Perform enhanced due diligence for on-boarding new clients, and monitoring current clients, to ensure accurate assessment of their risk profile

By implementing forward-thinking solutions, Law Firms can expect:

  • Increased efficiency of their risk/conflict teams,
  • Improvements in their client intake processes, and customer experience
  • To meet professional and legal obligations
  • To minimize the unwarranted risk of fines, reputation damage, and loss of client confidence
