Quinn emanuel trial lawyers

Our Culture

Each year the firm hires:

  • Recent law school graduates
  • Judicial law clerks
  • Laterals

Most law firms claim to be different

However, upon close examination they are tough to distinguish. Ours is not.

Whether it is our dress code (there is none), the lack of bureaucracy, or the fact that we try many, many more cases than the other firms, our firm is different. Here are some of the differences:

  • WE TRY CASES
    We take cases to trial—and win more than our fair share.
  • INTERESTING & CHALLENGING WORK
    Companies hire us to do their most important and challenging cases. As a result, we do some of the most interesting work around.
  • FLAT ORGANIZATION
    There is little hierarchy among the lawyers at our firm.
  • HOMEGROWN PARTNERS
    In the last 5 years 56 of our associates have been promoted to partner—13 were made partner in 2017.
  • TALENT MANDATORY. SUIT OPTIONAL.
    No dress code and no "face time" requirements.
  • WE VALUE TALENT, NOT SENIORITY
    We are a meritocracy. You are not judged by anything other than the quality of your work.
  • THERE IS NO 1st YEAR ASSOCIATE WORK — THERE IS ONLY WORK
    If you demonstrate you are capable of doing the work that a fifth year lawyer would do at another firm your first year, you will do it.
  • BASIC & ADVANCED TRIAL ADVOCACY COURSES TAUGHT BY FIRM PARTNERS EACH YEAR
    We will teach you how to try a case.
  • WE ARE THE SECOND MOST PROFITABLE LAW FIRM IN THE WORLD BY PROFITS PER PARTNER (THE AMERICAN LAWYER 2017)
    We are financially sound.
