Beechwood’s world-class, multi-disciplinary team and associates seek clarity on the other side of complexity. Although these experienced practitioners are subject matter specialists, they prefer to facilitate and motivate those who then have to implement the strategy rather than instruct and dictate.
Robin retired from Britain’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (now National Crime Agency) in 2013 where he was the Strategic Co-ordinator for Criminal Finance and Profits. Robin was the lead for Project QUAVER, a multi-agency response to the threats posed by money laundering through the Money Service Business (MSB) sector in the UK. He was also chair of the Strategic Alliance Partnership – Proceeds of Crime Group. The group included law enforcement representatives from the UK, US, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, and focused on developing activity to tackle global money laundering risk.
As part of this activity Robin established the Expert Laundering Evidence Programme within SOCA, which was designed to allow the knowledge garnered through global law enforcement investigations to be exploited within the criminal justice arena. Robin is a key member of our team on work involving AML/CTF.
