Quinn Emanuel Heads to London

Posted by Richard Lloyd

L.A.'s Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges is set to open its first European office, with the news this week of a launch in London. The firm has hired restructuring litigator Richard East from the local office of Kirkland & Ellis. East, who seemed set for a move to Weil, Gotshal & Manges, has been charged with growing a practice that will bring Quinn Emanuel's own brand of high-value litigation to Europe. With an expected increase in litigation involving banks proliferating out of the credit crunch, the West Coast firm hopes to fill a void that has seen many of London's leading firms reluctant to bring cases against major financial institutions. Our sibling publication Legal Week has more details on the launch.
