Kathleen Sullivan Featured in December 2013 The American Lawyer Cover Story
In an age of blogs and e-mail publications, the cover of The American Lawyer magazine remains one of the most prominent places a lawyer can be featured. The American Lawyer’s December 2013 cover story features Quinn Emanuel name partner Kathleen Sullivan in a profile entitled “The Golden Touch” and in the online version, “Quinn Emanuel’s Successful Bet on Kathleen Sullivan.” The article describes Sullivan’s unusual transition from Harvard and Stanford law professor and Dean of Stanford Law School to chair of Quinn Emanuel’s appellate practice as “a singular success story.”
Opening with photographs of Sullivan in the lobby of the New York Life Building, the home to the firm’s New York office, the article highlights Sullivan’s recent appellate wins. These include her Supreme Court victory for Shell in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, which rolled back the Alien Tort Statute, and her bench trial and Second Circuit win for Entergy in Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee v. Shumlin, which invalidated Vermont’s efforts to close a nuclear power plant. The story also describes Quinn Emanuel’s unmatched growth in recent years into a firm that now has 700 lawyers in 15 offices including nine outside the U.S.—and the only female name partner at any Am Law 100 firm.
