Bush v. Gore may have divided the country but it brought together the two attorneys arguing it: David
Boies of Boies, Schiller & Flexner, and Theodore B. Olson of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. In its aftermath,
the two men became friends, sharing summer bike trips with their wives and an interest in wine. And in
2009, they famously teamed up in the Proposition 8 case, winning back the right for same-sex couples
to marry in California.
Super Lawyers Magazine sat down with the two attorneys earlier this year for a wide-ranging discussion about
marriage equality, law firm culture, what each looks for in a new hire and the future of the billable hour.
