Violence against Attorneys 

What was once considered rare has now become commonplace as attorneys and their families are receiving threats at work, at home, or on travel, from disgruntled clients, criminals, extremists, or in certain countries, the government.

Generally speaking, those in family or criminal law are at the highest risk, but threats and violence are now impacting attorneys in what were once considered “safe” fields such as Real Estate, Immigration, Environmental & Natural Resources, Health, Bankruptcy and Labor & Employment.

Let us help you address threats by creating security and incident response plans for your high-risk attorneys, their families, and your office staff.

Our American and European experts:

  • design and implement security measures to ensure lawyers work in an atmosphere free from intimidation, harassment and improper interference;
  • carry out thorough, impartial, and independent investigations into incidents.

Please note: We are currently building the Violence against Attorneys Tracker (VaAT)™. Our nonpartisan website aims to be the first to provide reliable, easy-to-access information on the number of violent incidents in the United States and Europe. The VaAT™ will be based on a coalition that shares knowledge about threats. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.
