Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan is bolstering its international arbitration practice with a double hire from Allen & Overy (A&O), taking on global international arbitration head Stephen Jagusch and arbitration partner Anthony Sinclair.
Jagusch will head Quinn Emanuel’s international arbitration practice from its London office while Sinclair joins as a partner.
In a statement, managing partner John Quinn said the firm’s expansion in the international arbitration area is not over.
“We’re building a premier international arbitration practice and we see Stephen and Anthony as the centrepieces of that plan,” he said. “We’ll be adding more partner and senior level talent in other arbitration centres in the coming months.”
Ivan Marisin, managing partner of the firm’s Moscow office, said the hires would be beneficial to the firm’s Russian practice.
“It’ll be extremely beneficial to our Russian clients to have Stephen and Anthony with us,” he said. “An ever-increasing percentage of the commercial disputes involving Russian companies are governed by English law and are arbitrated in London.”
Earlier this month, Quinn Emanuel hired A&O IP and antitrust litigation partner Nadine Herrmann and a team of 10 lawyers and staff for a Hamburg launch (1 May 2012), an opening that follows the firm’s launch in Mannheim two years ago (23 February 2010), when Quinn Emanuel also turned to A&O for patent litigation partner Marcus Grosch. Grosch brought with him A&O’s entire Mannheim office (1 March 2010).
