A top player with Comancheros motorcycle gang and an Auckland lawyer have admitted laundering millions of dollars in ill-gotten gains.

Lawyer Andrew Simpson was named for the first time on Wednesday as he pleaded guilty at the High Court at Auckland.

The 42-year-old was one of a dozen people swept up in the raids that saw police seize millions of dollars in assets in April.

And the gang's local second-in-command has also pleaded guilty.

RNZ reporter Anneke Smith was at court.
