Jenner & Block Partners Brandon Fox and Keisha Stanford, and Associates Tessa Roberts and Annie Wilt, discuss the new US Strategy on Countering Corruption in an article for Lawfare. The authors write that the Biden administration has successfully made the case that corruption around the world is a national security concern for the United States. While it is not clear that the administration will be able to achieve the lofty anti-corruption goals it has set for itself, an increased focus on fighting corruption may have enough of an impact to make it worth the investment, they write.
