Boies Schiller Flexner has picked its new crop of leaders.

The firm, which has seen some 60 partners depart this year after a transition to new leadership, has tapped Sigrid McCawley, Matthew Schwartz, and Alan Vickery to be its three new managing partners, three sources familiar with the promotion told Business Insider.

McCawley, based in Fort Lauderdale, is a commercial litigator known for working on the firm’s representations of Jeffrey Epstein victims. Schwartz, based in New York, is a former assistant US attorney who joined the firm in 2015 and has represented Devon Archer, a former business partner of Hunter Biden. Vickery is a longtime partner at the firm who has represented clients like the former president of the Galleon Group hedge fund.

The managing partners, who were elevated at a virtual meeting of the firm’s partners on Friday, are taking the reins of leadership after a tumultuous year. They join David Boies and Jonathan Schiller, two co-founders of the firm who remain managing partners, and Natasha Harrison, who who Boies has recently referred to as his heir apparent. She was promoted to managing partner last year and was recently named deputy chair.

Nick Gravante, who was named a managing partner at the same time as Harrison, recently revealed that he would be joining Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft with three other Boies Schiller partners.

Also on Friday, two partners — Hamish Hume in Washington and Joanna Wright in New York — were named to the firm’s executive committee, which shares leadership responsibilities with the managing partners, the three sources said. Hume has been with the firm for 16 years, according to his LinkedIn profile, and Wright is a relatively new partner at the firm, having been elevated to the role in December 2019, according to her LinkedIn profile.
