USA – Squire Patton Boggs and religious persecution

Dear Editor, 

Squire Patton Boggs is a prominent member of the Fairfax County business community. It was formed by corporate merger in 2014 in Washington, DC, and is a recognized name among law / lobbying firms around the world. Its website describes the firm as providing “insight at the point where law, business and government meet.” That’s a formidable nexus.

Among the pantheon of SPB clients are Saudi Arabia, Communist China, Qatar, Cameroon and the Palestinian Authority. What do these regimes have in common? They either condone or turn a blind eye toward persecution of religious minorities, especially Christian minorities.
