The firm formerly known as Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges has changed its name to Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP.

Joining the firm’s masthead is Kathleen M. Sullivan, who is a partner in the firm’s New York office and heads its national appellate practice.

““Kathleen Sullivan would be on anyone’s list of the top three or four advocates practicing in the United States today,” the firm said in a press release. “She has not only built a thriving appellate practice at the firm, but has played a key role in the firm’s trial practice, arguing important motions in federal and state courts around the country.


“Her inclusion in the firm’s name reflects the integration of our trial and appellate practices and our strengths as a national law firm.”

Sullivan is a former Harvard Law professor and dean of Stanford Law School.  She joined Quinn Emanuel in 2005. Among her notable achievements since joining the firm was a recent victory the New York Times called “stunning.” In it she persuaded the New York Court of Appeals to uphold New York Gov. David Paterson’s power to appoint Richard Ravitch as lieutenant governor.

Quinn Emanuel has more than 400 lawyers with offices in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Chicago, Tokyou, London and Mannheim.
