Following is an excerpt:

Despite the Saturday night bombing in Lower Manhattan, as well as the discovery of an undetonated device in nearby Elizabeth—as well as other incidents elsewhere in the area—law firms in New Jersey's largest city saw little to no disruption Monday.

In deciding against an office closure, delay or emergency announcement, "it seemed like everyone around here was going to be engaged in business as usual," said James Flynn, managing partner of the Newark office of Epstein Becker & Green at 1 Gateway Center. He noted that one attorney, an Elizabeth resident, opted to work remotely for safety reasons.

"Unfortunately, it is now 'business as usual'" to have terrorism in the headlines, added Flynn. "We see these events and we react to them, and part of the way we react to them is to go about our business."
