U.S. Money Laundering, 2016 Edition

U.S. Money Laundering, 2016 Edition

This treatise is intended to be a comprehensive desk reference for white-collar practitioners, banking lawyers, accountants and officers and directors of financial institutions or other regulated institutions that face the risk of money laundering. To that end, the first two chapters trace the development of the money laundering statutes and provide a guide to the money laundering terminology used by Congress, as interpreted by the federal courts. Succeeding chapters follow the statutes in discussing law of promotion money laundering, concealment money laundering, tax money laundering, Bank Secrecy Act money laundering and government-sponsored “sting” money laundering, together with the inchoate offenses of money laundering conspiracy (as distinct from the general conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371) and attempted money laundering.

International money laundering, in all its forms, is analyzed and discussed, as are § 1957 offenses arising from transactions in the proceeds of specified unlawful activity. This treatise concludes with an analysis of the sentencing of offenses under both § 1956 and § 1957 of the statute.
