David Boies has been reelected as chair of Boies Schiller Flexner and five attorneys have been promoted to partner following the firm’s annual December retreat over the weekend, according to a source with knowledge of the firm.

The 80-year-old firm founder’s reelection comes roughly two years after Boies Schiller began its transition in earnest, one that has been complicated by the departure of about a third of its partnership as well as the departure of the two leaders the firm originally appointed to take the mantle from firm founder Boies: Nick Gravante, who left in 2020 to join Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, and Natasha Harrison, who announced in November she is leaving to start her own firm in 2022.
