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.
If you are interested in working at the firm, we encourage you to send us your résumé, transcript and a writing sample directly. We also host events and interview at certain law schools. Of course, if you see us at a campus event or on campus interviews, please feel free to contact us there or sign up for whatever interviews slots we have available.
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.
