Our Tokyo office focuses on litigation in the United States and Europe, and our lawyers do not practice domestic Japanese law.
Our Tokyo office focuses on litigation in the United States and Europe, and our lawyers do not practice domestic Japanese law. Accordingly, we are looking for either Japanese bengoshi or benrishi who have experience in U.S. or European litigation (above and beyond a degree, such as an LLM) and are interested in focusing exclusively on foreign litigation, or for attorneys from the U.S. or Europe with advanced Japanese language skills. Japanese language capabilities should be significantly beyond conversational, and include an ability to conduct and participate in client meetings conducted exclusively in Japanese.
Applicants should contact Ryan Goldstein at email@example.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.
