Online payments – Money laundering prevention

Lizarza Abogados S.L. has enabled an online payment service through a highly reputed bank to facilitate the provision of funds or payments by its clients. Therefore, the expression “online payments” does not necessary mean payment but a way of transferring money to Lizarza Abogados S.L.P. for the latter to fulfil the professional services commissioned by the client.

Lizarza Abogados S.L.P. has the legal obligation to report to the Spanish Money Laundering Prevention Service (SEPBLAC) on any suspected money laundering activity and Lizarza Abogados S.L.P. may not and must not previously or subsequently inform the reported person of such a communication.
