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. In this Instant Insights, we’ve brought those stories together and will continue to update the collection as news develops.
UPDATE: The New York Times said Tuesday night that it had “terminated its relationship” with Boies Schiller Flexner. The paper’s statement said in part: “We never contemplated that the law firm would contract with an intelligence firm to conduct a secret spying operation aimed at our reporting and our reporters. 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.
In a message to lawyers and employees at his firm on Tuesday, David Boies said that Harvey Weinstein is no longer a client, and that Boies “would never knowingly participate in an effort to intimidate or silence women or anyone else.”
