Paul Weiss Nabs Partner Duo From Boies Schiller

 |  August 10, 2020

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison has hired two disputes partners from Boies Schiller Flexner as the firm eyes a possible office opening in Northern California.

Meredith Dearborn and Jessica Phillips both join Paul Weiss’s litigation department, with Dearborn potentially moving to the West Coast, and Phillips staying in Washington, DC. 

Both are experienced litigators, with Paul Weiss chairman Brad Karp saying the duo’s “experience and track record of success on behalf of the nation’s largest technology companies in their most important matters, will be of great benefit to our clients, including many based on the West Coast.”

Phillips, meanwhile, brings extensive experience in a broad range of commercial litigation areas, from employment law and business disputes, to constitutional law. She has also defended anti-corruption prosecutions and related sanctions, and export control instructions, in which she managed successful corporate defences.

That last suite of skills will be useful to tech sector clients as US-China trade tensions build up, with the Trump administration announcing potential measures against the popular video-sharing app TikTok.
