Quinn Emanuel boosts IP practice with Mayer Brown hire
Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan has boosted its intellectual property practice with the hire of high-profile partner Andrew Schapiro of Mayer Brown. Schapiro will divide his time between New York and Chicago.
Schapiro explained his decision to shift to Quinn Emanuel: "They've come on the scene like a rocket in terms of litigation," adding: "Quinn is doing a lot of cool and exciting stuff," he says. "I think a lot of litigators out there have been watching them with amazement. And, not to be immodest, but I think they were watching me too and here we are."
A statement released by the firm described Schapiro as "a unique talent," and said that "he can master and explain the most complex cases to any audience, be it a jury of ordinary citizens or a panel of sophisticated judges."
