​Notice of Court Appearance Spoof

January 3, 2014

We want to make you aware of an email spoof that is impersonating the domain name of several large law firms, including Orrick.

The spoof involves an email falsely purporting to be from Orrick or another law firm and describing a fictitious court appearance.  If you received such an email, please be aware that it did not come from our firm. In addition, note that the email may contain a link to a computer virus.

Given the apparent scope of this spoofing scheme, we are taking the unusual step of posting this notice.  We continue to maintain the highest level of technology security and wish to emphasize that the scheme was not the result of any compromise to the security of our systems.  If you have questions, please contact: Questions@orrick.com.

Please do not include any confidential, secret or otherwise sensitive information concerning any potential or actual legal matter in this e-mail message. Unsolicited e-mails do not create an attorney-client relationship and confidential or secret information included in such e-mails cannot be protected from disclosure. Orrick does not have a duty or a legal obligation to keep confidential any information that you provide to us. Also, please note that our attorneys do not seek to practice law in any jurisdiction in which they are not properly authorized to do so.
