April 23, 2007

WASHINGTON, DC — April 23, 2007, 9:00 a.m. — The law firm of Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP announced today that Managing Partner Donald L. Flexner was named in the April 2007, Inside Counsel magazine as one of “The best lawyers to call in a worst-case scenario.” The cover story column, “The Crisis Rolodex,” features five top law firm attorneys from five law practice areas. Mr. Flexner was featured as the lawyer to call “to survive life-or-death antitrust matters”.

Inside Counsel, a monthly magazine published specifically for general counsel and other top in-house legal professionals hailed Mr. Flexner as “The specialist for high-stakes antitrust defense, because he knows antitrust inside and out – literally.” The magazine dubbed him “a neurosurgeon — or rather the neurosurgeon — the miracle worker you want to see when you wake up in traction and you can’t feel anything below the tracheotomy.” The accolade was the result of the magazine’s poll of inside counsel, law firms, and legal consultants, as well as Inside Counsel independent research. Flexner’s antitrust clients include Alcoa, American Express, AT&T, Northwest Airlines and DuPont.

“Don Flexner is an outstanding counselor and an outstanding litigator,” said the Firm’s Chairman, David Boies.
