John Sutton

The money laundering laws in Australia are regarded by many as harsh and complex. In NSW there are two sets of laws (state and commonwealth) that govern money laundering. There are money laundering offences in the NSW Crimes Act and the Criminal Code (Cwlth) that are very serious and carry maximum penalties of 20 and 25 years imprisonment respectively. In addition, the courts have power to order the freezing and seizing of assets on an interim basis and the forfeiture of assets on a final basis. The legislation imposes strict procedural compliance to fight such orders with harsh consequences if you do not comply.

As specialist corporate criminal lawyers we understand the business behind the dealings in property and money. We understand these complex offences and have experience in both the State and Commonwealth offence provisions. Our team has the experience to assist if you face other charges related to the money-laundering.

For further information on NSW and Commonwealth money laundering laws and penalties see the articles below:
