Once in charge of overseeing a firm-wide restructuring and re-imagining of Boies Schiller following a series of high-profile exits, attorney Nicholas Gravante has decided to exit himself and is joining the law firm of Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft.The news, which The Wall Street Journal first reported on Wednesday, marks the latest sign of troubles at the firm founded by the prominent trial lawyer, David Boies.Boies Schiller staffed 350 lawyers at its peak and has experienced dozens of partner departures this year. Today the firm lists 207 attorneys on its website and it has recently sought to sublet part or all of its glamorous New York City office.Many of the firm's exits have stemmed from internal friction over the divvying of compensation, as well as transparency into finances generally, but attorneys have also wrestled with public criticisms of Boies following his representations of Harvey Weinstein and Elizabeth Holmes.
