Publication of Millington and Sutherland Williams on The Proceeds Of Crime (sixth edition)

We are delighted to announce that the sixth edition of Millington and Sutherland Williams on The Proceeds Of Crime has been published by Oxford University Press. The editorial team included Oliver Powell, and a contribution from Helen Pugh, both of Outer Temple Chambers.

The proceeds of crime field continues to be one of the fastest moving areas of the legal system in England & Wales. Millington and Sutherland Williams on the Proceeds of Crime offers an extensive and authorities examination of asset forfeiture and civil recovery. Chapters new to this edition:

  • Examine the new Anti-Money Laundering Directives that have entered into force in 2020 and provides for certain amendments to the risk-based approach towards money laundering by considering the measures that must be taken to mitigate money laundering risk.
  • Provides on overview  on the UK sanctions framework both before and after Brexit, considering: the institutional framework; penalties and enforcement; important themes; specific regimes; and review/de-listing.  
  • Examines civil forfeiture, in particular the seizure of cash and other assets, as well as the Law Commission’s recent key review of POCA.

Previous editions have been recognised by governments, both national and international, for their focus on the importance of asset recovery as a vital weapon in the fight against organised crime and corruption. Millington and Sutherland Williams on The Proceeds of Crime is used in the Academy of European Law as well as the libraries of the Chief Justices of Jamaica, Barbados, and Papua New Guinea. The book serves as an international guide, assisting barristers, solicitors, practitioners, and academics in navigating this often-complex area of the law.
