Christopher E. Duffy

Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP

New York, NY, USA

Chris Duffy is a partner in the New York City office of Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP. His practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, internal investigations, government investigations, and pre-litigation dispute resolution, usually for clients in the financial, media or sports industries.

As co-lead counsel in a 2011 trial in Delaware Chancery Court, Chris secured a victory for a hedge fund investor in one of the first cases to address the intersection of investment funds' fiduciary duties and their ability to "gate" investor funds. In 2009 and 2010, he worked alongside firm chairman David Boies on two high-profile jury trials in New York federal court, each involving billions of dollars of alleged damages.  More recently, Chris represented two witnesses in one of the most closely watched criminal trials of 2012. 

Chris is a graduate of the University of Virginia and the Columbia University School of Law, where he was an editor of the Columbia Law Review.
