Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, founded in 1997, has grown to more than 200 lawyers practicing in offices strategically located throughout the United States and in London, England.

The firm regularly serves as lead counsel on complex, high profile global matters. By combining the skill and diversity of Boies Schiller Flexner attorneys with the partnership’s well-established network of global resources, we are able to deliver consistent success for our clients across jurisdictions and throughout the world.

We treat every case from its inception as though it is headed for trial to ensure the best result for our clients, even though few go that far. Over the past two decades, Boies Schiller Flexner has tried more than 450 cases before juries and judges in federal and state courts throughout the United States and participated in more than 200 international arbitration proceedings.

Our seasoned trial lawyers and former prosecutors and regulators represent some of the world’s most prominent institutions and individuals, both before federal and state agencies and in litigation. We regularly appear before the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, Congress, State Attorneys General, other state, federal, and foreign agencies, and – when necessary – in court. Where proceedings are initiated, our lawyers represent corporate and individual clients at the pre-trial, trial, and appellate stages.

We not only help clients caught in government investigations, we also frequently assist clients that have been victims of crime to seek justice—whether by presenting their case to law enforcement or regulators, bringing civil claims in court, or both.  Based on our meticulous presentations of law and evidence, and our credibility before government officials, our team has had notable success in convincing authorities to bring charges where our clients have been harmed.

Our lawyers also regularly conduct internal investigations and help to create, maintain, and review effective compliance programs. Because each situation is unique, and because the credibility and independence of an internal investigation are critical to its success, our experienced team develops a unique plan for each client, while at the same time keeping disruption of the client’s business to a minimum.

Lawyers in the Global Investigations and White Collar Defense group include former federal prosecutors, senior officials from the Attorney General offices of New York and other states, the FTC, the White House, and Congress. The group’s partners have conducted more than 100 criminal trials.
