Anti Money Laundering Procedures

As a law firm, Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen is subject to the Danish Act on precautionary measures for the prevention of money laundering and funding of terrorism.
Pursuant to this Act, we are under an obligation to obtain identity information from new as well as established clients who have not previously submitted identity information.
Thus, clients are required to submit information on name, address and civil registration number (CPR no.) or central business registration number (CVR. no.), when placing a commission with us. 
Foreign clients are required to submit other information which identifies the client in the same manner as the Danish civil registration number identifies a person, and the central business registration number identifies a company.
Pursuant to the Act, identity information will be kept on file for a minimum of five years after client relations have ceased.
