Since the news broke of sexual harassment and assault claims against Harvey Weinstein, one of Tinseltown’s most powerful movie moguls, ALM journalists have closely covered its connection to law firms and the legal industry. Whether the impact has meant more business for lawyers working for Weinstein or the company he formerly ran or more worries for firms facing harassment claims against their own lawyers, the legal community has felt The Weinstein Effect.

Such an operation is reprehensible, and the Boies firm must have known that its existence would have been material to our decision whether to continue using the firm. Whatever legalistic arguments and justifications can be made, we should have been treated better by a firm that we trusted.” Our earlier story is below.
