“Not every attorney has been portrayed by Ed Begley Jr. in an HBO film, by George Clooney on the stage and by himself in the series finale of a popular TV drama.
But David Boies, the chairman of Boies, Schiller & Flexner, is not your everyday lawyer. If there was a groundbreaking case in the past three decades, there’s a good chance that Boies was involved.
