Quinn Emanuel’s Shanghai office provides the highest-quality US and Chinese legal talent on the ground in China.
We provide representation in the areas of white collar defense and general business litigation, offering a range of services to foreign and local clients. Our clients have found our capabilities of knowing how things actually work in China to be very useful in managing legal risk from the US and Chinese governments as well as in dealing with contentious matters that take place outside of China/Asia but involve facts and circumstances related to China, Japan, Korea or elsewhere.
Applicants seeking employment opportunities in the Shanghai office should send a CV and writing example (in English and any other languages the applicant is fluent in) to ShanghaiRecruitment@quinnemanuel.com.
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.
