We are one of the world’s leading firms for Internet-related disputes. We have litigated every form of internet-related dispute—on both the plaintiff and defense-sides. We are often retained to seek injunctive relief and to defend against it. We have litigated the following internet-related claims:
We have won at trial, or obtained summary judgment in, a number of cases later argued to the Second, Ninth, and District of Columbia Circuit Courts of Appeal. The degree to which our expertise in Internet matters is recognized may best be illustrated by the fact that several of our lawyers have been tapped for significant in-house positions with leading Internet companies such as eBay and Google.

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.
