Money Laundering

Posted On - September 9th, 2010 | By Tim Clancy | Category - White Collar Crime

When most people hear the term “money laundering,” they think of the transfers of money that has been involved in serious criminal activity – drugs or white – collar crime – among people who are actively engaged in the criminal activity. But there are also concerns among individuals and businesses as to whether the federal money laundering laws can reach their legitimate business activities.

What Is It?

The Federal laws that make money laundering a crime exist to take the profit out of the movement and use of the profits and/or the wealth generated by criminal activity. However, because the definition of money laundering is so broad, an individual or business could receive or handle money without any knowledge of its criminal origin and still find himself or itself under federal prosecution. Knowledge and experience, together with the aggressive pursuit of all available defenses, are the traits you want in your lawyer as you face the prosecution. The white collar crime attorneys at the Law Office of Clancy & Clancy have been defending people in the Dallas – Fort Worth area against money laundering charges and advising people under federal investigation for more than 40 years.
