Michael Bos Becomes Sixth Lateral Hire to Join Firm’s London Office since May

NEW YORK – July 13, 2011 – The international law firm Chadbourne & Parke LLP today announced that Michael Bos has joined the firm as international partner in the London office.

Mr. Bos will focus his practice on products liability counseling and defense, working with Chadbourne’s renowned litigation group to manage litigation for clients in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Before joining Chadbourne, Mr. Bos was a barrister in New Zealand, where he represented corporations in a broad range of commercial disputes.

The hiring of Mr. Bos maintains the momentum of Chadbourne’s recent London office growth, as he is the sixth lateral to join the office in the past two months.

“This is an exciting time for Chadbourne’s London office as we continue to add top notch legal talent and expand upon our existing practice areas,” said Chadbourne Managing Partner Andrew A. Giaccia. “We are proud to have Michael on our team and look forward to benefitting from the strong experience and insights he will bring to our products liability group.”

Prior to becoming a barrister, Mr. Bos spent nine years as a partner at DLA Phillips Fox, concentrating his practice on commercial litigation and insolvency. He represented British American Tobacco in the successful defense of the first-ever products liability claims for personal injury in New Zealand. In addition to his products liability work, Mr. Bos has done significant work in the areas of insolvency and restructuring and securities enforcement.

“Chadbourne’s products liability team in the U.S. and the U.K. has long been recognized for its talent and solid record of client victories and the addition of Michael broadens the scope of the group’s offerings,” said Claude S. Serfilippi, London office Managing Partner. “With his extensive experience in complex commercial litigation and his impressive wins for British American Tobacco, Michael will be a tremendous asset to the firm and its clients.”

Mr. Bos earned his LLB in 1991 and his LLM, with honors, from the University of Auckland in 1998. He is admitted to the New Zealand Bar and the New South Wales, Australia Bar.
