Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan has promoted a senior lawyer in Australia to partner as part of its nine-strong global promotion round.

Elan Sasson, who’s based in Sydney, has been elevated to the partnership of the global litigation powerhouse from senior associate. He joined the firm in 2014 from Baker McKenzie.

Sasson’s practice has a focus on representing funds and financial-services clients in disputes. He also specialises in strategic workouts and corporate insolvencies, with a focus on back-end disputes, and formal and informal restructures.

He has a background in commerce and his practice services a wide range of sectors, the firm said. Sasson was formerly an associate on the New South Wales Court of Appeal to Justice Margaret Beazley AO, who is now governor of NSW.

The other new Quinn Emanuel partners are Michael Bonnanno (Washington, DC), Frank Calvosa (New York), Yasseen Gailani (London), Mark Grasso (London), Nicholas Hoy (New York), David Myre (Silicon Valley), Jesko Preuß (Stuttgart), and Kate Kaufmann Shih (Houston).
