In Questions To Ask If Doing Business In A Corruption Hot Spot, White & Case partners Kevin Bolan, Jonah Anderson and Ira Raphaelson discuss the U.S. Department of Justice's spotlighting of Central America as a geographic hotspot for corruption and money-laundering risks and its use of resources that target commonplace compliance subject matter, such as corrupt payments and money laundering, to address the so-called root causes of migration.
