What Is Money Laundering?

Money laundering refers to efforts to conceal illegally obtained money so that it appears to legitimately belong to the criminal. It consists of three steps: placement, layering and integration.

  • Placement: depositing the money into a legitimate financial system (such as depositing it into a bank account)
  • Layering: moving the money around in a series of transactions, or using fraudulent bookkeeping, to make it hard to determine where it originally came from
  • Integration: returning the money to the criminal as proceeds from a legitimate business or investment

A series of federal laws, such as the Money Laundering Control Act of 1986 and the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, attempt to uncover signs of money laundering. Note that money laundering is considered a “secondary crime” because it is used to disguise the proceeds from other crimes, such as racketeering, bank fraud and wire fraud. So you could be facing additional charges on top of money laundering.

Our team of attorneys routinely handles complex financial criminal matters like money laundering. We have the resources needed to investigate the evidence and determine if there are holes in the prosecution’s case. We always seek creative solutions that other defense attorneys might miss to give you the best chance at a fair outcome.
