The government can be the most formidable litigation adversary of all, often playing by different rules, yet our firm has a proven track record of not only fighting back but actually beating the government in court. We take special pride in being a leader in government and regulatory litigation in the United States. No lawyers bring more firepower, expertise, or courtroom skills than we do to litigating against the government. We have consistently won cases involving federal or state government, both in court and in front of administrative agencies. Whether litigating under complex statutory or regulatory schemes, convincing government regulators to back down, or challenging the government when it intrudes upon fundamental rights, our attorneys have achieved unparalleled success.
Our success is largely attributable to the fact that so many of our attorneys come from the government’s elite. And our experience spans the ever-growing array of spaces in which the government regulates, including antitrust, civil rights, communications, energy, environment, finance, government contracts, health care, immigration, intellectual property, international trade, national security, transportation, and white collar. We also draw upon our firm’s other practice groups—include our preeminent trial, appellate, and white-collar practitioners—and leverage their creativity, reputation, and experience in order to gain every possible edge in government litigation.
We have litigated every dimension of cases that pose basic questions about governmental authority and enforcement. We have successfully challenged adverse government actions and laws, won landmark precedents on appeals, defended clients against enforcements actions, litigated alongside the government to defend decisions benefitting our clients, and even represented the government itself against private entities. Because government litigators recognize how formidable Quinn Emanuel is in court, we bring valuable credibility that benefits our clients whenever they face the government. Indeed, it is telling that various government entities have specially retained our firm to represent them in especially novel and challenging lawsuits.
