Quinn Emanuel Named a “Litigation Powerhouse” by Law360 2016


Quinn Emanuel has been named a “Litigation Powerhouse” and one of the top three firms for litigation by Law360. The firm was recognized for its many recent high-stakes victories, including its victories on behalf of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (“FHFA”) in what has been described as a historic partnership between a government regulator and a private law firm. Quinn Emanuel won an $806 million judgment for FHFA in residential mortgage-backed securities litigation against Nomura. That trial victory came after winning nearly $18 billion in settlements from 16 other major investment banks that FHFA had sued on similar claims. The firm also won one of the largest private antitrust settlements in history—$1.86 billion—on behalf of a class accusing major banks of rigging the market for credit default swaps. According to Law360, Quinn Emanuel is “the go-to shop for high-dollar, high-profile litigation against Wall Street banks.”
