Brussels is no ordinary city, and Quinn Emanuel is no ordinary firm.
Brussels is no ordinary city, and Quinn Emanuel is no ordinary firm. Our Brussels office is the center of QE’s European Competition practice. We provide vital support to clients in matters involving competition, regulatory, and enforcement issues. Sometimes the support takes the form of counseling. Sometimes it involves investigations, enforcement proceedings and litigation. Our approach is lean, muscular, and powerful: we work together to develop a strategy that is most effective for our clients—be it execution of a single, national solution, implementation of a pan-European solution, or coordination of an integrated, global strategy.
We are currently not accepting applications for positions in this office. Should this situation change we will post further details of positions available on this page.
Quinn Emanuel mourns the loss of one of its name partners, Bill Urquhart. Bill joined the firm 31 years ago when it was just a few lawyers in downtown Los Angeles. Bill was a visionary and helped lead a transformation of the firm from a small litigation boutique to the largest and most successful litigation firm in the world, with over 800 lawyers in 23 offices on four continents.
In his legal practice, Bill was a sage counselor and trusted advisor for both plaintiffs and defendants, and for numerous Fortune 100 companies in their most important disputes — matters that usually involved tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of dollars. Over the years he advised IBM, Hughes, Johnson Controls, CNA, Nokia and Qualcomm, among many many others.
For the many people at the firm who were fortunate to know Bill, he was more than a visionary partner and excellent lawyer, he was also a friend, who lived and loved life. He was loved and will be missed.
He leaves behind his wife Mary and 6 children, and our thoughts are with them in this time of grief.
