Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan said Tuesday that it has started accepting bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, joining a handful of other firms that have acknowledged their openness to the fledgling payment method.
The firm said it accepted its first cryptocurrency payment last week using BitPay, a Georgia-based bitcoin payment service. The firm did not name the client involved.
In a statement, founding partner John Quinn said that since Quinn Emanuel has several clients in the financial technology sector, it is comfortable adopting nontraditional payment.
