Firm News

LOS ANGELES—John B. Quinn, the founding partner of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, today launched “Law, disrupted,” a brand new podcast that tackles how the law is responding to innovation and current events. 

As managing partner of the business litigation firm the Wall Street Journal termed a “global litigation powerhouse,” Quinn has unique access to some of the top minds in the law and beyond. “Law, disrupted” brings the up-to-the minute conversation about legal innovation into your living room. In the podcast, John joins industry professionals to examine and debate legal issues bearing on the newest technologies, innovations, and current events, having thought-provoking discussions about how disruption is playing out in the legal sector.

“Everyone who knows me knows I like to listen and learn. This podcast allows me to do both, tapping into some of the most fascinating minds in the law today,” Quinn said. “I look forward to having a series of vigorous conversations about legal issues and innovations, about the role that legal disputes play in our increasingly fractious world, and about emerging business conditions and trends. I hope listeners enjoy these discussions.”

Initial episodes tackle such subjects as SPACs, NFTs, and litigation funding. New episodes will deal with ransomware, autonomous vehicles, U.S. Supreme Court practice, and private equity.


About John B. Quinn: Since founding Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP in Los Angeles in 1986, John has built it into the largest law firm in the world devoted solely to business litigation and arbitration. He is regarded as one of the top trial lawyers in the world: In a 2016 poll by Bloomberg LP’s Big Law Business, he was named the “most famous practicing lawyer in the world” at large law firms. Described as a “master strategist” by the American Lawyer, he has been hailed for his unique vision in building a litigation-only global firm and for the decision not to represent the world’s largest money-center banks so the firm could be adverse to them. Beyond his law practice, John is an Ironman triathlete and contemporary art enthusiast, having opened the Museum of Broken Relationships on Hollywood Boulevard in 2016 and launching an artist-in-residence program at Quinn Emanuel for emerging and mid-career Los Angeles artists last year. He is also the owner of Q SUSHI, an omakase-only Michelin-starred sushi restaurant in downtown Los Angeles. Learn more at
