Many are now struggling as breaches in firms have made headlines recently and attorneys’ clients are increasingly asking questions about firm security.

As a matter of fact, details have recently been released about a first class-action lawsuit against a law firm for inadequate security measures. A complaint was filed, Shore v. Johnson & Bell. and alleges that the law firm engaged in “systematically exposing confidential client information and storing client data without adequate security.”
