Money laundering is serious charge – and a conviction for it can mean a considerable period of imprisonment. If you are accused of money laundering, the authorities have the power to freeze your assets with immediate effect. If you suspect that you are about to be charged with a money laundering offence, you need to take decisive action.
Money laundering cases are not always those in which a person knows that money has been dishonestly obtained: you can also be charged with money laundering if you do not carry out sufficient checks as to how the money was obtained.
At MTM, we are recognised as leading practitioners in dealing with fraud and financial cases, which include money laundering. We have years of experience of successfully challenging prosecutions for money laundering, using our forensic analysis of the source of funds and records of income and expenditure to undermine charges. Our experienced team can represent you in all Scottish courts and at all stages – from police interview right through to court representation.
Our approach is one of challenging all evidence and witnesses brought against you – and bringing our own expertise, hard-won experience and expert witnesses to undermine the prosecution case from the earliest stages. Wherever possible, our aim is to stop a case from being prosecuted in the first place.
Taking early action is the best way to approach a case and get the best possible outcome. Whatever your position - whether you have been charged or are about to be charged with an offence - call us on 0800 328 0944 for an initial free and confidential consultation.m
