Boies, Schiller & Flexner partner Wendy Miles appointed QC

RELATED TOPICS​

Boies, Schiller & Flexner’s London arbitration partner Wendy Miles has abbey appointed as Queen's Counsel (QC). 

Miles is one of only five English solicitor-advocates named in the roll call this year, which included the appointment of 88 barristers. She will be formally appointed at a ceremony in London on 16 February, 2015.

A limited number of senior barristers and solicitor-advocates are made Queen's Counsel as a mark of outstanding ability. The process is merit-based, in accordance with a rigorous framework of skills, experience and competencies in the field of advocacy. 

"Wendy's appointment brings honour to her in her career, and to our firm, in which she plays an important role," says Boies, Schiller & Flexner Managing Partner Jonathan Schiller.

Miles, who heads the firm's international arbitration practice, joined litigation powerhouse Boies, Schiller & Flexner in London in September of 2014.  She adds further depth to the firm's first international office, which acts for clients in their most important international disputes.

"Wendy is a talented lawyer who has repeatedly been recognised as one of the top lawyers in the field of international arbitration," says London Managing Partner Natasha Harrison. "Her appointment to Queen's Counsel recognizes her outstanding advocacy skills and is a reflection of the best-in-class trial lawyers serving the clients of the firm."

Candidates for Queen's Counsel are assessed by members of the judiciary, peers and clients and interviewed by an independent panel in London.  The Lord Chancellor makes his recommendation to the Queen who, in turn, approves the appointments.

"It is a real honour to be appointed Queen's Counsel and to have had the opportunity to work with such great clients, lawyers, firms, judges and arbitrators and institutions over the years," says Miles. "So many people have provided so much encouragement and support along the way."
