Compliace & Due Diligence
Compliance with money laundering obligations
In today’s post Jackson landscape, if a claimant lawyer accepts a client or registers a claim on the Claims Portal, without applying early and relevant due diligence, they run the risk of expending time and resource progressing a claim which ultimately could be declined and for which they will not receive their fixed fee.
Actually there are a number ID Validation and AML services available to the legal sector. For claimant lawyers who often deal with their clients remotely, these could represent a time and cost efficient way of gaining some reassurance in relation to their customer, whilst protecting their revenue stream and reputation.
