Welcome to the AMLA Coffee Break, a collaborative podcast series with Guidehouse and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, where we discuss the various topics in the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) of 2020. Our first episode is on enhanced whistleblower protections and increased penalties, so settle in and pour yourself a cup of coffee as we kickoff our AMLA Coffee Break Series.
If you would like us to cover a specific topic, please reach out to us.
It is clear that the government really wants people to be whistle blowers. They get a lot out of it and that they actually are able to make cases out of this. I think it's just a demonstration that although whistleblowers may not always have clean hands, it really is an aid to law enforcement.
