    How Quinn Emanuel Obtained $581 Million Settlement in Banking Antitrust Case

    John is joined by Dan Brockett, partner in Quinn Emanuel’s New York office and Chair of the firm’s Financial Institution Litigation practice.  They discuss how Dan and his team recently recovered over $581 million from JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, UBS, and Credit Suisse, as well as significant injunctive relief, in one of the largest antitrust class action settlements in history.  They discuss how these large banks act as brokers profiting with little to no risk in $1.7 trillion stock loan market and how they allegedly agreed to boycott new technologies, particularly new electronic platforms, which posed a threat to the banks’ lucrative position.  They also discuss how the case developed as a result of years of research by a Quinn Emanuel team at the firm’s expense, the five and a half year history of the litigation, and how a settlement was achieved in mediation after a Magistrate Judge recommended that the class be certified.  Finally, they discuss the injunctive relief reforming the market that the Quinn Emanuel team was able to obtain.

    English Legal Culture

    John is joined by Richard East, founder and senior partner in Quinn Emanuel’s London office. They discuss the key differences between litigating in the US and the UK, including the pre-action protocols that are mandatory in the UK before initiating a lawsuit, the UK presumption that the loser will pay the winner’s attorneys’ fees, and the differences between the broad discovery procedures in the US and the more narrow disclosure rules in the UK.  They also discuss the inability to prepare witnesses before testifying in the UK, the division of UK bar into solicitors and barristers, and the restrictions on public access to court records in the UK.  Finally, they discuss the comparative rarity of jury trials in civil cases in the UK and the differences in the types of interim relief available in the UK, including powerful asset freezing injunctions which are recognized by jurisdictions around the world.

    Reflections on a Lawyer's Presidential Campaign

    John is joined by Francis X. Suarez, Presidential Candidate, Mayor of Miami and Of Counsel (on Leave of Absence) in Quinn Emanuel’s Miami office.  They discuss Mayor Suarez’s personal experience running for President as an underdog candidate, including how he adjusts to the demands of constant travel without the advantage of private jets, what it is like to read the “opposition research” his opponent’s consultants have prepared about him, and how his years as a practicing lawyer have prepared him for this campaign. They also discuss his personal relationships with the other candidates, the current prosecutions of former President Trump, and what he has learned about the country, the process and himself as a result of this campaign.

    Re-release: The Art of Cross-Examination

    Re-release: The Art of Cross-Examination

    John is joined by Bill Price, the founder and co-chair of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan's National Trial Practice Group and a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Bill could lay claim (though he never would, being very modest) to be possibly the greatest business jury trial lawyer of his generation. He has tried over 50 cases to verdict and lost only two of them. Representing plaintiffs, he has won five 9-figure verdicts, as well as one ten-figure verdict. He has obtained equally remarkable results representing defendants. He is a master of all aspects of trial practice but is best known as a brilliant cross-examiner. This episode, therefore, focuses on the art of cross-examination.
