Federal Money Laundering Lawyers in Boston, Massachusetts

Money Laundering Charges Carry Serious Penalties

Money laundering involves transferring money and other gains into legitimate channels in order to (1) cover up unlawful activity (“specified unlawful activity” or “SUA”) from which the money actually came; and (2) avoid taxation by the Internal Revenue Service.

Money laundering is a very complex area of the law and is regulated under legislation that requires banks and other financial institutions to report cash transactions of $10,000 or more to the Department of the Treasury. Regulated institutions include:

  • Banks
  • Credit card companies
  • Insurance companies
  • Securities broker-dealers

These entities have to report suspicious transactions that may be related to criminal activity, or appear to be intentionally made in order to avoid bank-reporting requirements.

Individuals may not make financial transactions with money that was gained from certain crimes. Individuals are also prohibited from transferring money to another person or making multiple cash deposits at different banks in order to avoid bank-reporting requirements (also know as “structuring” or “smurfing”).

Federal Charges Are Complex

Banks must verify the identity of their customers and check their identities against lists of known and suspected terrorists. The Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency may become involved in an investigation of your financial institution.

In today’s complex economy, experienced money-laundering defense lawyers are few and far between. At the Yannetti Criminal Defense Law Firm, our attorneys have the experience to produce a solid defense against the federal charges you face.
