Quinn Emanuel Named to Law360’s List of the “Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms” and The National Law Journal’s “Plaintiffs’ Hot List”


Quinn Emanuel has once again been named to The National Law Journal’s annual “Plaintiffs’ Hot List,” which recognizes the firms with the best track record representing plaintiffs in major business cases. The firm was selected for its bold strategy to sever ties with certain global financial institutions and major accounting firms in order to represent clients who had claims to bring against those institutions. Since then, Quinn Emanuel has become the leading firm worldwide in such representations and has won billions of dollars from the world’s banking giants on behalf of clients such as the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Assured Guaranty Municipal Corp., and MBIA Insurance Corp. Law360, which described the firm as a “powerhouse in post-financial collapse litigation,” also named the firm to its list of the “Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms,” an honor that comes directly on the heels of the firm’s recognition as one of the “fearsome foursome”—the four firms in-house counsel fear the most in litigation (based on a poll of general counsel by BTI Consulting Group).
