Two New Law Firm Breaches in the News
On April 22, it was reported that midsized law firms McCarter & English and Stevens & Lee had suffered data breaches.
McCarter & English said it is actively investigating a network security incident that “impacted the availability of [its] computer systems.”
Leaders at the New Jersey-based firm said they restored key systems in the week after the incident occurred the weekend of April 9, including access to email. Their lawyers’ ability to perform services for clients was “not significantly impacted,” according to the firm.
