Contact Committee Convenor


The ADLS AML/CFT Law Committee (the Committee) comprises senior lawyers and law firm practice managers with extensive experience advising and/or operating in the area of AML/CFT law. The Committee was formed in November 2021 in response to the statutory review of the AML/CFT Act and prepared an extensive submission on the review to the Ministry of Justice in December 2021. For the first half of 2022, the Committee intends to continue its focus on working with the Ministry and the regulators, exploring solutions to the issues raised in its submissions that are pertinent to the legal profession.

The Committee will transition into an ongoing subject matter specialist committee in the second half of 2022, keeping a watching brief on AML/CFT matters of interest, promoting better understanding of the AML/CFT regime and supporting collegiality amongst practitioners specialising in the AML practice area.
