Gary has partnered with international publishing powerhouse Thomson Reuters to produce the most comprehensive NZ textbook available on AML/CFT, specifically targeted at new phase 2 professions (initially, lawyers, who are newbie reporting entities from 1 July 2018).
Named “AML/CFT Workflows and Guidance for Lawyers” the online text is designed to provide the legal profession with a comprehensive guide to complying with the AML/CFT regime. It is structured as a practical step by step manual over 10 specific chapters/modules, to assist lawyers with setting up their risk assessment and compliance programme.
The approach taken is highly practical rather than academic, and includes numerous tips, traps and tasks drawn from Gary’s deep anti-money laundering experience. This reference work will have enduring value for firms grappling with AML issues beyond the 1 July implementation date.
After 20 years in NZ and London law firms, Gary understands the services, structure and culture of professional firms intimately. He has been able to write the material in a way that is tailored and bespoke to the needs of the Compliance Officer about to be installed inside those firms. The objectives and philosophy behind the text is discussed in this article here.
The Workflow modules are now available through the Westlaw NZ subscription platform. For more information click here.
