Veteran appellate lawyer Christopher Landau, the Trump administration’s pick for U.S. ambassador to Mexico, reported earning $3 million at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in a newly released financial disclosure, a mandatory ethics filing that includes details about partner compensation and the scope of a nominee’s potential conflicts of interest.

Landau’s financial disclosure, released late Monday, is particularly noteworthy in the legal profession, given the scarcity of Quinn Emanuel lawyers who jumped to posts in the Trump administration. Quinn Emanuel ranked second overall on a 2018 Am Law 100 list of firms based on profits per equity partner, identified as $4.73 million. Landau joined Quinn Emanuel in March 2018.
