Welcome to Dorsey & Whitney’s monthly Anti-Corruption Digest. Anti-corruption enforcement crosses boundaries like no other, so keeping up to date is more important than ever. In this digest, we draw together news of enforcement activity throughout the world and aim to reduce your information overload. Our London, Minneapolis, New York and Washington DC offices edit the digest and select the most important material so that you can use this digest as a single source of information.
