Rules against money laundering

In common with all other Danish law firms, Plesner is governed by the Danish Act on Measures to Prevent Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism.

By law, we are under an obligation to collect and store identity information of our clients. When creating a case, we are therefore under an obligation to collect the client's civil registration number or Company Registration (CVR) Number and a series of other identity information depending on the type of business (Danish business, foreign business, association, foundation, partnership etc).

Moreover, we are under an obligation to look into transactions if we suspect that they are related to money laundering or financing of terrorism. In that connection, we are also under an obligation to notify the Danish Public Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime or the Danish Bar and Law Society.
