Law Firm Accused Of Crimes

I was far from shocked to learn a former Wall Street Journal reporter is suing a law firm for hiring Indian operatives to illegally hack into his emails. But then I saw that an aviation executive is suing the same firm.  Then I looked up the firm. It is Dechert LLP, which happens to be one of the largest law firms in the world. In 2018 it was ranked as the 43rd highest grossing law firm in the world.

The allocations, if true, mean that one of the largest law firms in the world in engaged in criminal activity as part of its normal operations. And they don't even do family law, which is the legal practice where crime by lawyers occurs most often. 

I guess I should not be surprised given people like the John Choi, the Ramsey County Attorney in Minnesota believe lawyers are immune to committing fraud. All lawyers not just ones in family law. 

Just how bad is the legal industry anyway?
