Financial services law firm Murphy & McGonigle today announced the launch of an improved version of its M&M Defend app, a smart phone application that guides individuals, businesses and in-house counsel with instantaneous information during legal crisis situations.
M&M Defend is a completely rebuilt offering of Murphy & McGonigle’s proprietary smart phone app that prepares individuals, businesses and in-house counsel who may encounter a variety of legal crises: surprise interviews initiated by law enforcement agents, execution of a search warrant at an office or warehouse, receipt of an unexpected demand for business records, or a surprise SEC / CFTC examination at a firm’s office.
"In many industries, legal emergencies can surface with no warning. M&M Defend on a smart phone is an always present guide for individuals and businesses, and therefore a highly valuable tool," said Steven D. Feldman, a Shareholder in the White Collar Defense, Investigations & Compliance Counseling Practice and architect of M&M Defend.
