Kapellmann victim of a ransomware attack

05. February 2023

Kapellmann und Partner Rechtsanwälte mbB became a victim of a ransomware attack on 03 February 2023. This blocked access to the IT systems and encrypted company data at all our locations. The aim of this attack was to extort a ransom.

Our website as well as our telephone system are not affected by the attack, but communication via e-mail is unfortunately currently not possible.

Our lawyers and your other contact persons at our firm are available to you without restriction by telephone via landline or through the mobile phone numbers known to you. In urgent cases, you can also send us documents via court or your lawyers via the special electronic lawyers' mailbox (beA).

We immediately took the necessary steps to protect all data in the best possible way. In the background, a team of specialists and employees is working intensively on analysing the incident and restoring the data in a secure IT environment.

The complete rectification of the situation places high demands on our human resources. Due to the interruption of operations, there may be delays in the provision of services, for which we ask for your understanding and which we will try to keep as short as possible.

We are working closely with cyber specialists and the police on this matter.

We deeply regret and apologise for the inconvenience caused by the attack. We assure you that we will do everything in our power to make all information available again as soon as possible. We thank you very much for your comprehension.

We will also inform you about any developments via our homepage as well as via social media (firm profile on LinkedIn).
