David Boies, the founder of Boies, Schiller & Flexner, loves the thrill of placing bets both at the casino and on big contingency cases. In November one of those bets paid off when Visa agreed to pay his client American Express as much as $2.25 billion to settle an antitrust suit. The payday for Boies and his partners should be huge. For associates who worked on the case, however, their share of that fee depends on how each decided to roll the dice -- the deal was a partial contingency arrangement.
