How legal firms can avoid being caught out by money laundering regulations…

In June of this year, in the Times “The Brief” it was reported that solicitor regulators were sending out guidance to law firm leaders on how they could avoid being caught out by strengthened money laundering regulations from Whitehall.

Follow the lead of a Dorset-based law firm who contracted Legal Workflow to create an interface between their case management system and the online payments system?

It’s a very simple – but fool-proof – solution. The figure to be paid is automatically uploaded to the payment gateway from the case management system but it’s masked so that it cannot be changed. When the client receives their bill and instructions to pay online, the system only allows them to pay that amount, thus avoiding the possibility of money laundering.

Neat, and just one of the products that Legal Workflow has developed for legal firms.
