Stroock & Stroock & Lavan

Banks have long kept security top of mind, using safes with elaborate locks, bars on windows, security guards and surveillance cameras. But today, banks—and the law firms that represent them—need to protect something more important than dollar bills. “In our case, it’s documents,” says Director of Information Security at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, LLP, Gil Danieli.
