AML, CTF and Sanction Compliance
FORT provides legal advice on all aspects of anti-money laundering (AML), counter-terrorist financing (CTF), sanction compliance, suspicious activity reporting (SAR), threshold transaction reporting requirements. FORT lawyers help clients to navigate in this rapidly evolving legal and political landscape and comply with the constantly rising regulatory expectations.
FORT client portfolio includes not only natural and legal persons (accountants, tax consultants, consumer financer’s, crowd financing platforms, financial consultants, retailers, payment institutions, banks etc.), but also state institutions. Furthermore, we provide legal assistance not only to the obliged entities, but also to persons whose daily activities have been unreasonably affected by the global fight against money laundering and terrorism financing or who are willing to minimize possibility that their activities are affected.

We may prepare AML, CTF and sanction compliance policies, procedures and internal controls and/or audit, evaluate and improve the existing procedures and measures, assist in modelling of the relevant business processes, development of related IT solutions, prepare for and assist with an external audit (incl. by supervisory authority), represent in relations with the supervisory authority, conduct suspicious activity investigation and assist with reporting and so on.
