Born March 11, 1941, is an American lawyer and chairman of the law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner. Boies rose to national prominence for three major cases: leading the U.S. federal government’s successful prosecution of Microsoft in the United States v. Microsoft Corp., his unsuccessful representation of Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore in Bush v. Gore, and for successful representation of the plaintiff in Hollingsworth v. Perry, which invalidated California Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage. Boies is also known for defending controversial clients in the United States, including Theranos, tobacco companies, and Harvey Weinstein

Boies was an attorney at Cravath, Swaine & Moore, where he started upon law school graduation in 1966 and became a partner in 1973. He left Cravath in 1997 when a major client objected to his representation of the New York Yankees even though the firm itself had found no conflict. He left the firm within 48 hours of being informed of the client’s objection and created his own firm, now known as Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP. It is currently rated 23rd in “overall prestige” and 15th among New York law firms by Vault.com, a website on legal career information. 

Currently serving as the chairman of Boies, Schiller & Flexner, David Boies previously served as Chief Counsel for the US Senate. He graduated from Yale University in 1966 and almost immediately made a name for himself. He amassed his fortune by representing a number of large corporations, including IBM, Napster, George Steinbrenner (owner of the NY Yankees), CBS, and the NBA Players Association during the 2011 NBA lockout. According to Fortune magazine, he is “corporate America’s number 1 hired gun.”
