Anti-Money Laundering

Inquires and More



Enforcing compliance with anti–money laundering (AML) and economic sanctions laws has become a top priority for regulators and law enforcement. As penalties for violations grow, the business need for regulatory counseling and enforcement defense has never been greater.


Today, organizations face unprecedented scrutiny and pressure in the global war on money laundering and terrorist financing. Often, investigations are unavoidable, whether initiated internally by a compliance group or internal auditor, or externally by regulators or other governing bodies. Global clients rely on Pallas Consultants for investigative services and customized solutions in response to anti-money laundering (AML) sanctions and financial crimes. Law firms, regulators, financial institutions and cash-dependent corporations engage us as a trusted, independent partner to launch end-to-end investigations and bring them to successful conclusions, or to serve as independent monitors as part of a settlement or deferred adjudication.

We help clients identify, assess, and mitigate risks associated with money laundering, sanctions, and terrorist financing exposure to proactively ensure legal and regulatory compliance. We leverage data analytics to assess and optimize critical compliance processes in sync with regulatory expectations and best business practices. We evaluate anti-money laundering compliance programs and advise stakeholders in all matters related to a robust compliance framework that includes technology and governance-related practices.

Backed by deep experience gained across legal, government and corporate spheres, we guide clients through internal investigations, monitorships, and other crucial AML and economic sanctions matters.

Pallas Consultants is a trusted, independent partner to governments, law firms, and financial institutions in the global war on money laundering and terrorist financing. Our professionals with significant public service experience, who maintain strong working relationships within the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and other agencies, routinely assist clients in navigating government enforcement inquiries.
