Quick Look at 2021 Anti-Corruption Enforcement Developments

2021 was a surprisingly busy year in legislation that impacts anti-corruption enforcement, mainly stemming from the massive and sweeping National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which went into effect on January 1, 2021, and included significant new tools for combatting money laundering and kleptocracy.
