“The reliability and security of systems and processes are a paramount concern of corporations and law firms,” says James Branch, Executive Vice President for IT and Security Officer.  “We are committed to continuous improvement to address that concern, and we are proud to have achieved these certifications.”

Rick Hutchinson, Chief Operating Officer, had this to say:

“In an era of frequent government and corporate data breaches, and of public revelations like the Panama Papers, we recognize that security must come first for corporations and law firms.
