Boyden Gray PLLC is excited for the many challenges ahead of us this year, but we wanted to take a moment to reflect on all the work that we accomplished in 2023.
Here are just some of the accomplishments we’re proudest of:
· In February, Michael Buschbacher was elevated to partner. Boyden was quoted saying, “Michael has led the firm’s environmental litigation efforts and has served as lead counsel in many other cases and regulatory proceedings. Our clients rely on Michael for his unique perspective and creativity, his deep knowledge of law and policy, and his skillful advocacy. Michael’s promotion is well deserved and another marker in the growth and expansion of our firm.” Read more here
· In March, the en banc U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld our nationwide injunction against President Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal employees in Fed for Medical Freedom v. Biden—the only successful suit against that mandate. Read more here
· In May, our client Alliance for Fair Board Recruitment welcomed a landmark ruling from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California holding that AB 979—a California law mandating racial diversity quotas for corporate boards—violates the Constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

Circuit, and a former clerk for Judges Doug Ginsburg on the D.C. Circuit and David Porter on the Third Circuit. Read more here
· Collectively, we have authored opinions that have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and others. We have helped shape public opinion through hundreds of media appearances in the Journal, the Daily Wire, Bloomberg Law, Washington Examiner, the American Conservative, National Review, Real Clear Politics, and many others.
It’s our honor to carry on Boyden’s work—with much more to do in 2024.
