Mandy Hargun


Mandy Hargun qualified in 2005. She has experience in anti-money laundering, judicial review, corporate compliance and data privacy law.

Mandy spent 12 years in private practice managing the criminal department and as the head of the judicial review department.  Mandy then began to work for a city firm as compliance counsel for the EMEA region, right in the heart of 4th money laundering directive and the GDPR being implemented.

Mandy now works as a consultant lawyer and trainer specialising in anti-money laundering and data privacy matters. She also regularly writes articles for law firms on these subjects as well as drafting precedents for legal research companies.

In her own words…

“It’s great to work with people that can use my knowledge first hand, as an end user almost. It’s good to simply get to the point and provide advice where the other person knows about the subject to the same extent, but may find themselves seeking assistance on few points. There’s a sense of respect working with people that know their subject matter and helping them achieve their objective gives me the most satisfaction!”
