NEW HOME - Three Boies Schiller Flexner partners in New York have bounced to Cadwalader, where they’ll launch a trial practice group. Christine Simmons reports that Sean O’Shea, Michael Petrella and Amanda Devereux are expected to join Cadwalader today as litigation partners, with O’Shea serving as chair of the firm’s trial practice group. The lawyers, who moved to Boies Schiller when it acquired O’Shea Partners three years ago, focus on commercial and white-collar defense litigation.

EPIC DECISION - In less than a year, the SCOTUS split decision in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, which further bolstered the Federal Arbitration Act, has proven to be a strong weapon for the pro-arbitration defense bar. Erin Mulvaney and Ben Hancock report on an analysis by affiliate The National Law Journal of 92 decisions from U.S. courts of appeal and federal district courts that cited Epic in the seven months after it was handed down last May. The upshot? “It’s one of the most important decisions from the Supreme Court that impacts workplace issues,” says Gerald Maatman, a partner at Seyfarth Shaw in Chicago.
