In light of the anti-money laundering and the countering of the funding of terrorism (AML/CFT) legislation, natural or legal persons conducting relevant financial business or relevant activities are obliged to implement effective measures and procedures to ensure compliance with AML/CFT obligations.

The ever-evolving legislation and the increased regulatory enforcement in the AML/CFT sphere pose several difficulties for subject persons to be law-compliant.

Mifsud & Mifsud Advocates offers advice in relation to compliance with AML/CFT obligations to all subject persons. Being well-aware of the legal, reputational and regulatory risks involved in the AML/CFT area, our team offers assistance to subject persons to better understand AML/CFT legislation and to develop the relevant measures and internal policies. Assistance in onboarding clients and in training employees is also offered. Adherence to such regulations will in turn mitigate the above-mentioned risks and guarantee business stability.

Mifsud & Mifsud Advocates also offers assistance in drafting representations and clarifications following compliance reviews and examinations by supervisory authorities, and in appealing any fines imposed by such.
