We host events on law school campuses throughout the country each spring. Our goal is to meet prospective summer and first year associates. Please contact the Recruiting Coordinator in your preferred office to obtain a schedule of these events.
A. Send your résumé and transcript to the recruiting contacts at the office in which you are most interested. If you are interested in more than one office, send them to the recruiting contacts at each of those offices, with a note that you are applying to multiple offices. Our recruiting contacts all work closely together.
A. We will start callbacks soon after we receive transcripts. They will continue throughout the summer. Don’t worry if you’re going to be away all summer and cannot schedule an interview until the fall, just let us know, and we will schedule it when you are back.
A. Of course not. You will have an opportunity to meet other firms—if you want to. Each year some students accept their early offers and skip OCI.
A. Feel free to get in touch with any of our recruiting contacts, or any of the lawyers you meet from the firm.
A. To our recruiting contacts:
A. Yes. A very significant percentage of our lawyers clerked for U.S. District Courts, Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the U.S. Supreme Court. If you are interested, simply send your resume to our recruiting contacts listed above.
A. Generally yes for both seniority and compensation purposes. Federal judicial clerks are eligible for a $105,000 clerkship bonus.
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.
