At Quinn Emanuel we believe two things. First, every case is a team effort. Second, every associate should gain the broadest possible experience in litigation and international arbitration.
At Quinn Emanuel we believe two things. First, every case is a team effort, with every lawyer contributing regardless of hierarchy or seniority. Second, every associate should gain the broadest possible experience in litigation and international arbitration.
Elite young lawyers come to Quinn Emanuel from both the Bar or other top law firms in London because they know that they will work on exciting cases involving complex legal issues for some of the world’s best-known companies. And they come because we judge lawyers by their ability, not by the year they qualified.
Applicants should send their CV to the London Office Recruiter, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, however, also look out for indications on social media that we are currently hiring (Twitter: rceast1) or in the UK legal press.
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.
