Am Law 100 firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner is planning to open their first international office in London later this year. An outgrowth of the firm’s work with U.K.-based Barclays regarding litigation surrounding a LIBOR settlement last year, Boies, Schiller & Flexner is currently approaching litigators around London about making a lateral move this summer.

AMLaw Daily reports that firm co-founder and managing partner Jonathan Schiller, a complex litigation and international arbitration expert, has been working with Barclays in London since last year to sort out a variety of regulatory issues with the U.K. and U.S. governments. Boies, Schiller & Flexner partner Duane Loft is already splitting his time between New York and London, and, while he has not confirmed the fact that his firm is opening on office across the pond, he expressed enthusiasm for the idea.

“Boies Schiller has been actively considering the London Market for some time, and the firm hopes to establish a presence in London in the near future,” Loft said to Legal Week.

Boies, Schiller, & Flexner currently has more than 100 partners throughout its nine U.S. offices, and is considered to be one of the most profitable law firms in the nation. Based out of New York City, the firm has been working with Barclays more and more frequently since it successfully defended the company in a $13 billion case regarding its purchase of Lehman Brothers.

Boies, Schiller, & Flexner has worked with a number of high profile clients in the United States. Some of these include Al Gore and his dispute over the 2000 Presidential election and Terra Firma chief Guy Hands.
