BSF partner Harlan Levy has been named to City & State’s inaugural Law Power 50 List, which ranks the state's 50 most influential lawyers.
Levy became a partner at Boies Schiller Flexner in 2000. His practice focuses on business litigation, state attorney general matters, and white collar defense.
In 2011 Harlan left the firm to become First Deputy Attorney of the State of New York, serving as top deputy to the AG until his return to the firm’s partnership in 2015. As described by The New York Times, he “played a critical role in helping oversee a number of significant investigations by the state attorney general’s office.”
Earlier in his career he served as an ADA in Manhattan, where he tried 18 felony jury trials to verdict. He became a national leader in the use of DNA from its beginning, and authored “And the Blood Cried Out,” a highly regarded book about the use of DNA evidence in the courtroom.
He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, former Chair of the Association’s Council on Criminal Justice, and former President of the Federal Bar Council American Inn of Court.
