All law firms are subject to the act on measures to prevent money laundering and financing of terrorism.
We are obligated by law to obtain and file identity information about our clients, which is why we ask for the name, address and personal or business ID number of our clients when starting a new case. In case of businesses, we also need information about and documentation of the beneficial ownership.
If we suspect money laundering or financing of terrorism, we are obligated to make further investigations. If the suspicion cannot be disproven, we must make a report to the Danish Bar and Law Society or the Public Prosecutor for Special Economic and International Crimes.
