Law Business Research acquires Just Anti-Corruption

Law Business Research, an independent publisher of research, data and analysis on international business law and international legal markets, has acquired the assets and brand of Just Anti-Corruption, a leading provider of daily news on international anti-corruption enforcement.

Just Anti-Corruption was founded in 2010 in Washington, D.C., as a subscription publication of WDC Media LLC, which publishes the Main Justice website devoted to news about the U.S. Department of Justice.

It will become a major part of Global Investigations Review, a Law Business Research publication launched in 2014. The combined editorial teams will provide compelling news and analysis about cross-border investigations and the agencies that are driving an increasingly connected international enforcement environment, say Law Business Research.

The combined team will be well positioned to continue to provide coverage of the cross-border enforcement activities of the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the World Bank, the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, the U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority and the U.K.’s Serious Fraud Office, among others.

Mary Jacoby, who was the founder, editor and publisher of Just Anti-Corruption, will join Law Business Research as consulting editor to Global Investigations Review.

“I’m very excited to be joining the dynamic and high-quality editorial operation at Law Business Research,” Jacoby said.

Richard Davey, LBR’s managing director, commented: “We are proud to be able to offer our subscribers an enhanced information service by combining with this established and respected editorial brand.”
