Spear's Review

‘There’s a constant need for anti-money laundering advice,’ Jo Rickards tells Spear’s, noting the National Crime Agency’s (NCA) increasing enthusiasm for account-freezing orders in recent years. She adds that ‘fraud is definitely now the main focus for most investigations agencies’, a trend she says is fuelled partly by the 2020 pandemic which saw a concerning spike in fraud cases.

Rickards is co-chair of the White Collar Defense & Special Investigations Practice at Greenberg Traurig and a widely awarded and respected criminal lawyer, specialising in personal and corporate defense.

Rickards represents corporates and individuals in corruption, fraud and money laundering investigations in multiple jurisdictions, often where there is a civil or regulatory overlay on proceedings.
