We are very pleased to announce that we have published a detailed chapter, The Intersection of Money Laundering and Real Estate, in Anti-Money Laundering Laws and Regulations 2020, a publication issued by International Comparative Legal Guides (ICLG).

Money laundering and anti-money laundering concerns relating to the real estate industry is a topic on which we have blogged frequently, given its growing importance and the many fascinating issues implicated. We hope that you enjoy the chapter and find it useful.

ICLG is a global platform for legal reference, analysis and news, hosting comparative legal guides and research tools that cover law in more than 191 jurisdictions across 60 practice areas.  In the 2020 version of Anti-Money Laundering Laws and Regulations, we are joined by other law firms from around the world in discussing the AML regulatory regimes in 26 countries, including the U.S. In addition to our chapter on money laundering and real estate, the guidebook contains chapters addressing the extraterritorial reach of the U.S. money laundering statutes; AML issues in the Asia-Pacific region; and EU legislation regarding AML issues.
