Barristers “need guidance from chambers on sanctions compliance”

December 7, 2023

"Its annual anti-money laundering (AML) report also said that some property and planning barristers “were not being consistent” as to whether some of their work fell within the money laundering regulations (MLRs)....The report said it had “noted tension in delineating responsibility between chambers and barristers” when it came to compliance....Meanwhile, members of the Property Bar Association and the Planning and Environmental Bar Association were concerned that they were not clear whether certain work that they do falls within the scope of the MLRs”.
