Eat your Wheaties, Mama always said. David Boies is a bagel man — just a tip for those aiming to build a new law firm with a swelling practice in record time. When Boies and Jonathan D. Schiller hung out a shingle together in September 1997, their firm had 10 lawyers. By the end of 1998, when Boies was making headlines as the government’s lead lawyer against Microsoft Corp., it had exploded to 35. This Christmas, it will hit 50. Boies & Schiller had always recruited young lawyers to staff its complex cases — until now. On Dec. 1, the firm changed its name to Boies, Schiller & Flexner. Donald Flexner, 58, of Washington, D.C.’s Crowell & Moring, brings a multimillion-dollar book of business that includes Northwest Airlines, Southwestern Bell and America Online. James Denvir III, 49, another Crowell partner, will also join the firm.
