Quinn Emanuel Named to The National Journal's 2013 "Appellate Hot List"


The firm has once again been named to The National Law Journal’s “Appellate Hot List.” This year the firm won several game-changing appellate victories. It led client Shell Oil to a 9-0 victory in the U.S. Supreme Court in a landmark ruling limiting Alien Tort Statute lawsuits against companies doing business in foreign nations. In the Federal Circuit, the firm won a vacation of a preliminary injunction that had been entered against Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone. In the Ninth Circuit, the firm won reversal of a $172.5 million trade-secret verdict on behalf of client Mattel Inc. And in the Second Circuit, the firm obtained a key reversal of a decision holding that a federal court had jurisdiction over American International Group Inc.’s suit against Bank of America Corp. covering mortgage-backed securities.
