Hunter Biden’s former employer, Boies Schiller Flexner (law firm), received $10 million in federally forgiven pandemic loans. The firm also donated nearly $1 million to Democratic candidates, according to an independent investigation.
Boies was one of 300 law firms that were investigated by Open the Books transparency nonprofit Open the Books. He took the largest loan from the Paycheck Protection Program (a program established by the Trump administration in 2020 for mom-and-pop business to survive the pandemic), which was worth $10.14 million. In 2021, the loan was repaid.
The firm, which was headed by David Boies, a longtime Joe Biden donor, billed clients $480 million in 2020 and 2021. Equity partners earned $4.5 million.
Boies employees and partners donated almost $1 million in federal campaign money during the 2020-2022 election cycles. This included $213,966 for Biden’s presidential campaign.
Hunter Biden, the first son, was “of counsel” at Boies in 2010. He earned $216,000 per year for a job that didn’t require him to attend meetings or keep office hours.
