Next week, David Boies dusts off his U.S. Supreme Court credentials when he returns after nearly a decade hiatus to argue a long-running legal battle over who owns a piece of art stolen by the Nazis at the outbreak of World War II.

Boies, a name partner in Boies Schiller Flexner, is part of a team led by partners Stephen Zack and Scott Gant, who have nurtured, pushed and spent countless hours and millions of dollars in the case, Cassirer v. Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection Foundation, to arrive at a pivotal moment in the nation’s high court.
