Three Boies, Schiller & Flexner lawyers win Europe "Women in Business Law" awards

June 19, 2015

Just one year after U.S.-based litigation law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner opened in London, three members of the office, including London Managing Partner Natasha Harrison, were honored with Women in Business Law Awards by Euromoney.

Ms. Harrison was named “Best in Litigation.” Partner Wendy Miles QC was named “Best in Commercial Arbitration.” And associate Fiona Huntriss was named “Rising Star” in litigation.

“Natasha, Wendy and Fiona are excellent trial and arbitration practitioners. These awards are richly deserved and exemplify how Natasha is building our office in London with best-in-class lawyers,” Boies, Schiller & Flexner Chairman David Boies said.

Managing Partner Jonathan Schiller said: "Natasha Harrison has led the firm's effort to develop in a very short time a London office of outstanding lawyers who serve the firm's clients expertly and globally. This is fantastic recognition for them."

Ms. Harrison, who launched the Firm’s London office last year, acts on behalf of hedge funds, investment banks, and other financial institutions in high-stakes international litigation. She and Ms. Huntriss this year won an important judgment for note holders against Spanish conglomerate Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas.

Ms. Miles, who joined the Firm last September to head its International Arbitration practice, is a well-known international arbitration and international public lawyer. She was co-lead counsel for South Sudan in a major boundary dispute that was resolved in favor of her client in 2009.

Ms. Huntriss acts for a range of financial institutions on high-value, cross border commercial disputes.

Boies, Schiller & Flexner this month announced that addition of a new partner in London, Kenneth Beale, along with three new associates, which will bring the total number of lawyers in London to 15.

The latest awards for Boies, Schiller & Flexner follow the selection of two lawyers in the United States, Karen Dunn and Alanna Rutherford, as “Outstanding Women Lawyers” by the National Law Journal earlier this year.
