Anti-Money Laundering Deskbook provides an introduction to the complex and dynamic law of money laundering, terrorist finance, structuring, and forfeiture for lawyers whose practice does not primarily involve criminal prosecution or defense, and for executives and managers of companies, to assist them to understand, identify, and avoid potential risks both inside and outside their organizations and to design and implement effective compliance programs.

In addition to providing a fundamental understanding of the key U.S. anti-money-laundering organizations, laws and regulations, reporting requirements, criminal statutes and penalties, the Deskbook details the international, cross-border nature of money laundering schemes and anti-money laundering efforts.

Keeping a keen eye on the always evolving “arms race” between money launderers and regulators, the Deskbook also keeps readers up to date with analysis of the latest high-profile cases, emerging trends, and potential sources of risk, such as shadow banking and trade- and service-based money laundering, FinTech, and state-authorized marijuana-related businesses.
