John is joined by Michael Nosanchuk, an associate in Quinn Emanuel’s New York office. They discuss Michael’s unique journey from studying screenwriting, to driving a taxi in New York City, to his time in sustainable farming to ultimately becoming a successful lawyer working in the premier art disputes practice in the world. They also discuss how these experiences prepared him for his career in law, including how driving a cab taught him cultural fluency, farming taught him patience and perseverance, and screenwriting taught him the importance of carefully crafting an emotionally moving story and telling the story in limited time. Finally, they discuss what led him to join Quinn Emanuel, including its heterogeneous collection of driven people and Michael’s observations of how art disputes differ from other kinds of litigation.
