Specialist Advisors on anti money-laundering and the UK Suspicious Activity Reporting Regime.
Cost effective expert assistance with your anti-money laundering systems.
O22G LLP is a new AML advisory service, marketing our services principally to the UK SAR reporting community. We offer expert assistance on a range of AML areas. O22G’s three partners are ex-senior managers in UK Law Enforcement, recently retired from the UK Financial Intelligence Unit in the Serious Organised Crime Agency. O22G offers uniquely skilled, confidential, and competitive services to help you better manage your AML activities.
O22G can assist you with:
- Advice and bespoke training on content and submission of SARs and Consent SARs, Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), Terrorism Finance, and Counter Proliferation reporting.
- AML training and presentations at conferences and meetings.
- Short practical reviews and reports on the effectiveness of your AML systems.
With our international experience and expertise we are especially well placed to assist the Reporting community and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can help you now or in the future. The O22G partners are:
- Jim Fitzpatrick, former Head of the UK FIU with particular expertise in the operation of the Consent regime. Jim is currently advising the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Economy and Finance in Kosovo on anti-money laundering and asset recovery work. Previously Jim had a successful career in HM Customs and Excise where he held a number of posts as Assistant Chief Investigation Officer, and prosecuted major drugs trafficking and money laundering cases. Between 2003 and 2008 he was the UK’s senior Law Enforcement representative at the British Embassy in Washington DC, USA.
- Cedric Woodhall, former Head of International Financial Intelligence, Terrorism Finance and Counter Proliferation. He chaired the Operational Co-ordination Group on PEPs and was Head of the UK Asset Recovery Office. Before joining SOCA he was Head of International Intelligence in the National Criminal Intelligence Service. He has represented the United Kingdom as an expert in the EU’s Asset Recovery Office and FIU Platforms. He has helped train FIUs within the Egmont Group, helped Guernsey FIU prepare for an IMF evaluation and participated in EU AML capacity building events in the Czech Republic and most recently in Ukraine.
If you have other concerns beyond AML risks, we also work closely with a number of former senior SOCA colleagues who provide expert advice and assistance on a wide range of threat areas including staff corruption, fraud, vetting and cyber crime.
