A high-profile litigation team of three Boies Schiller Flexner partners in New York has left to launch a trial practice group at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft.

Sean O’Shea, Michael Petrella and Amanda Devereux are expected to join Cadwalader on Friday as litigation partners, with O’Shea serving as chair of the firm’s trial practice group. They will be joined by another Boies Schiller lawyer, Marc Feingold, who will be a senior attorney at Cadwalader to support the team. The group focuses on both commercial and white-collar defense litigation.
