Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, founded in 1997, has become one of the nation's premier law firms. Today, with 300 lawyers practicing in offices across the country, we regularly serve as lead counsel in the most significant and highest profile disputes in the world. While best known for landmark cases such as United States v. Microsoft, Bush v. Gore, and In re Vitamins, we represent some of the largest and most sophisticated organizations in the world when the results matter most. In less than a decade, we have won and saved our clients billions of dollars in trials, arbitrations, and settlements. We have been described by The Wall Street Journal as a "national litigation powerhouse" and by the National Law Journal as "unafraid to venture into controversial" and "high risk" matters. And we are just getting started. In 1997, David Boies and Jonathan Schiller combined their talents and set out to build the most interesting and dynamic litigation practice anywhere. Two years later Don Flexner joined them. Since then, they have recruited and litigated side-by-side with a group of the most accomplished and effective lawyers in the country. Our lawyers have tried more than 400 cases, and include two former United States Attorneys, numerous former Justice Department officials and Assistant United States Attorneys, several former Supreme Court clerks, and many former partners of prestigious law firms. The talent of our partnership is matched by the skill and diversity of our associates, who come mainly from judicial clerkships and top law schools. Likewise, our corporate practice brings our standard of excellence to bear in negotiating complex and sophisticated transactions. For that reason, the American Lawyer noted that the firm has assembled "a team of seasoned attorneys to form one of America's most successful and sought-after law firms for cases that matter." Our clients know and rely on our talent, standard of excellence, relentlessness, creativity, and track record of success in a wide variety of practice areas and industries, for both plaintiffs and defendants. We have successfully defended and brought actions on behalf of our clients in some of their most high-stakes litigation.
