Quinn Emanuel has claimed success in an arbitration against its former clients, the founders of website ConnectU, which the firm represented in a suit against former Harvard classmate and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for allegedly stealing the idea for the networking site. While the settlement was confidential, Quinn Emanuel at one point inadvertently disclosed that the value was $65 million. In the arbitration, the firm sought a 20 percent contingency fee it valued at $13 million.
