The Law Firms Best at Cybersecurity

By April 25, 2017April 16th, 2020No Comments

Cybersecurity and data privacy is the fastest growing segment of outside counsel spending. It is also the biggest issue keeping clients awake at night. Clients are placing heavy focus on forward-looking, as well as current, cybersecurity issues.

Law firms have been jockeying for position as the market has developed over the last 5 years. And now, clients see a group emerging as the best.

Leading cybersecurity law firms are proactively taking a ground-up approach. They are starting with hosting client-specific briefings educating clients on the business implications and risks—and then focusing on the legal details. Still other firms are finding their ways to Boards to help them understand their risk and exposure.

The firms with the best understanding of the client, and who communicate cybersecurity risk in business terms, win the work for the counselling—and this is the opening for the rest of the cybersecurity-related work.
