A. William “Bill” Urquhart, a name partner of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, died Oct. 4, due to complications stemming from a bone marrow transplant. He was 72.

Urquhart joined Quinn Emanuel in 1988, two years after his former Cravath, Swaine & Moore colleague John Quinn established the litigation-only firm with fellow partners Eric Emanuel, David Quinto and Phyllis Kupferstein. He quickly became the firm’s unofficial recruiter-in-chief. In Urquhart’s 31 years with Quinn Emanuel, it grew from a 15-lawyer litigation boutique to an Am Law 50 firm with more than 800 lawyers in 23 offices worldwide.
