Without a doubt, Quinn Emanuel is one of the boldest firms among The Am Law 200, and one of the most profitable. Average partner compensation in 2005 was $1.65 million, making it the most lucrative firm outside of New York. And revenue jumped more than 20 percent for the third straight year, to $193.5 million. Quinn Emanuel's model is at once simple and radical: all litigation all the time, with an emphasis on taking cases to trial. Can a big firm thrive with such a single-minded focus? So far, yes.
