WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
BOIES CLUB? - Boies Schiller Flexner’s handling of an investigation into partner Joshua Schiller, after he was arrested for alleged domestic violence, has divided senior partners at the firm, and more lawyers will look for the door in the coming months, sources close to the firm told Law.com’s Dylan Jackson. A little over a month after his arrest, Schiller has been cleared to return to Boies Schiller from his leave of absence after the firm cleared him of any wrongdoing. But, sources said, many in the firm doubted that an investigation would turn up anything negative on him. The firm’s founders, including Joshua Schiller’s father, Jonathan Schiller, still have the final say when big issues arise, even if their decisions are perceived as putting their own interests and family members ahead of the firm’s wellbeing, four sources close to the firm said. As Jackson reports, interviews with people close to the firm have suggested that instances of perceived nepotism speak to deeper complaints within the firm that, despite its outward intention to transition to new leadership in order to preserve the firm’s long-term health, Boies Schiller continues to be run by its founders.
