SMM Legal lawyers, Wojciech Kapica and Adrian Rycerski, are among the authors of the first comprehensive publication on the prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing in the Polish market. This is the first exhaustive commentary to legislation on this topic.

The commentary “Przeciwdziałanie praniu pieniędzy oraz finansowaniu terroryzmu" [Preventing money laundering and terrorism financing] has been developed as a companion for the employees of institutions obliged to apply the AML law of 01/03/2018, helping them to identify, assess and manage the risk of money laundering and terrorism financing.

‘When working on the commentary, we strove to leverage practical experience of the authors’, says Wojciech Kapica, academic editor of the publication. ‘We managed to bring together a unique team of experts with thorough knowledge of the banking and brokerage sectors and experience in working with supervisory authorities’, he adds.

The commentary will be published by Wolters Kluwer. The pre-sale of the book has just been launched. First printed copies of the book will appear on shelves in bookstores on 18 December 2019.

This is yet another academic publication on ALM edited by Wojciech Kapica. An explanatory guidebook on the AML law, entitled “Przewodnik do nowej ustawy o przeciwdziałaniu praniu pieniędzy” (published by Wolters Kluwer) received enthusiastic reviews and sold out completely during the pre-sale period. New publications edited and co-written by Mr. Kapica, including “Skuteczny system compliance. Przewodnik praktyczny”, a practical guide on compliance systems (Wolters Kluwer scheduled to be published in 2020) are underway.
