Boies, Schiller & Flexner was named a Finalist in The American Lawyer’s Litigation Department of the Year awards. The American Lawyer wrote that, while some law firms go to trial only as a last resort, Boies, Schiller & Flexner “seems more comfortable playing offense than defense.” The publication took note of a trial victory against the U.S. government on behalf of shareholders of insurance company AIG, led by the firm’s Chairman, David Boies; a $663 million victory on behalf of a whistleblower in a trial led by partner Nick Gravante over highway safety; a trial victory for the defense by partners Karen Dunn and Bill Isaacson for a major player in the digital music industry; and Bill Isaacson’s victory for former college athletes in a trial over the NCAA’s amateurism rules. Other recent victories include the successful conclusion of a case led by Managing Partner Jonathan Schiller that recovered $8 billion for Barclays related to the bank’s purchase of Lehman Brothers assets in 2008. On the appellate side, The American Lawyer recognized a big win at the Supreme Court in the landmark securities class action case Halliburton v. Erica P. John Fund. “Over and over, Boies Schiller took on long-shot cases and delivered unexpected results for its clients,” according to The American Lawyer.
