This book takes a new angle by de-mystifying client money, presenting the rules, requirements, and anti-money laundering context of client money in an easy-to-understand guide. The book also encompasses diagrams, worked examples, and a section of training materials for the reader to use as continuous professional development.

Client money is the source of the majority of disciplinary prosecutions for solicitors and other legal professionals; it is also the primary concern of the money laundering legislative framework, including the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the Money Laundering Regulations 2017. Without money involved there would be limited concern about money laundering in a legal transaction. However, our focus is often client identity.
