On 11 March 2024, after a five day hearing, the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal dismissed an allegation of misconduct against Dentons.

The prosecution related to the measures that had been taken by the firm pursuant to its obligations under the Money Laundering Regulation 2007 to establish the source of wealth and funds of a client, who was a politically exposed person from a higher risk jurisdiction, and to carry out enhanced monitoring of the relationship, between 2013 and 2017. The identity of the client was anonymised pursuant to an order of the Tribunal. The Tribunal’s reasons will be available in around seven weeks.

Tim Dutton CBE KC, Richard Coleman KC and Marianne Butler acted for Dentons, instructed by Iain Miller at Kingsley Napley.
