Anti-money laundering procedures
- The United Kingdom’s anti-money laundering legislation and related regulations issued by The Law Society and Solicitors Regulation Authority require us to take steps to verify and document: (1) the identity and address of all clients of the firm (including the beneficial owner or effective controller of a company or trust); and (2) the source of monies paid to the firm. Sometimes we are able to verify and document the identity of a client through electronic data sources. If this is not possible, we will ask the client to provide us with the identification documents we are required to obtain. From time to time, or if their circumstances change, we may ask a client to provide up to date evidence of identity. If we are unable to obtain satisfactory evidence of identity, we will not be able to act or continue acting. We cannot accept funds from any source unless the source has previously been identified to our satisfaction. If payment is made in breach of this provision, normally the funds will be frozen until their source and provenance has been established.
- The legislation governing money laundering and the financing of terrorism has placed professional advisers (including lawyers) under a legal duty in certain circumstances to disclose information to the Serious Organised Crime Agency. Where a lawyer knows or suspects that a transaction involves money laundering or the financing of terrorists, he or she may be required to report their knowledge or suspicion to SOCA. If this happens, we will not be able to inform you that a disclosure has been made or of the reason for it, for legal reasons. We accept no liability for any loss, damage, costs or expenses that you might incur by reason of such disclosure.

Frauds and scams
- Cybercrime is on the increase. You should be alive to the possibility that a criminal might deliberately misrepresent himself or herself as a member of, or as someone acting on behalf of or working with, CND Parker, in order to carry out a fraud. Such scams normally originate by email. Often it will either promise the recipient a share of a large sum of money in return for paying a modest sum up front or request information about the recipient’s bank account in order that money can be paid to them. Sometimes the email will direct the recipient to a false website that intentionally replicates the look of a legitimate website.
- If you receive an email purporting to come from CND Parker, or if you are directed to a website that purports to be CND Parker’s website, and you have any doubts at all about the provenance of the email or website, please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us by telephone before you take any action and we will tell you whether the email came from us or whether it is our website.
