Stolen art:  money launderer convicted of structuring transactions to avoid BSA reporting requirements

Matthew Taylor, 44, of Vero Beach, Florida, USA has been convicted in a Los Angeles court of possessing and selling paintings stolen from a Los Angeles art gallery. But it's the financial crime elements that are especially interesting.

Crowdfunding: the good, the bad and the ignorant.

The buzz surrounding crowdfunding is palpable. But, says Nigel Morris-Cotterill, Head, The Anti Money Laundering Network, ultimate parent of World Money Laundering Report, there are all manner of risks involved and a trawl through internet bulletin boards and comments to articles on websites display a disturbing lack of understanding of what crowdfunding is and what those risks are.

Fake banks and fake grants schemes making a comeback

Earlier this year saw the return of an old friend (not really): the fake grant scheme. There have been a number including the now defunct Blue Millenium Foundation.  But there is something more interesting at play: something that has more than a whiff of the same stuff that underpinned the case of "The First International Bank of Grenada."

Offshore Due Diligence: meet Vidhya

Exactly who is performing due diligence when it's outsourced or offshored to a developing country? The answer will surprise - perhaps even worry - you.

Now available: Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation

Read possibly the worst Letter Before Action ever written and find out how to avoid the same mistakes

Learn how the British Government's templates for litigation protocols are so badly written they must be extensively modified.

How can Monty Python, Ayrton Senna, the New Zealand All Blacks and Barney from "How I Met Your Mother" help you develop a successful litigation strategy?

How can a 2,500 year old set of bullet points designed for warrior kings and their generals be a guide to the successful conduct of litigation in the 21st century?

Does pop-psychology help or hinder the advocate when examining witnesses?

How long does it take a jury to reach saturation point? And just how much information can they take in, store and process?

How do juries behave according to Newton's Laws - and why are black holes and magnets relevant in the court-room?

What is the difference between a win and a victory? And where are battles fought?

What is the litigator's most important trait?

Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation is not a manual: it is a way of looking at the conduct of litigation so as to increase the chances of success. It deals with the relationships between litigators and their clients, their opponents and their opponents' clients, the court, the judge and the jury.
