Boies Schiller Flexner has hired U.S. Justice Department lawyer Alison Anderson as a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office. The hire comes just a day after Boies Schiller partner Karen Chesley left to go in-house at The New York Times as litigation counsel.

Anderson joins the firm’s white-collar practice group led by partners Peter Skinner and Tracey Dovaston. She spent more than nine years in the fraud section of the criminal division of the U.S. Department of Justice and, in 2019, she was promoted to assistant deputy chief—a role she held until she joined Boies Schiller.
