Article, “Amid Bankruptcy Wave, Mercer Law Launches to Represent Creditors, Nonbank Parties”
June 10, 2020
In an article published on the first page of the Daily Report on June 10, 2020, Robert Mercer was highlighted for launching Mercer Law LLC, a boutique bankruptcy and insolvency firm, during a time when bankruptcy and restructuring is expected to see higher demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mercer, who was previously a partner at Bryan Cave LLP, Powell Goldstein LLP (before the Bryan Cave LLP merger), and Schulten Ward Turner & Weiss LLP, focuses his practice on advising fiduciaries, creditors, borrowers, and other significant parties in bankruptcy and insolvency engagements.
In the article, Mercer says that he can now take on engagements that would have been challenging in the past. “Now I have the luxury of taking cases that would be more difficult to take at a large law firm,” Mercer explains.
In addition to his more traditional bankruptcy and insolvency practice, Mercer works with plaintiffs’ firms in connection with class actions, multi-district litigation, and other cases with very large damages. In such engagements, Mercer focuses on debtor-creditor issues to protect plaintiffs’ interests to help ensure that there are assets to satisfy any potential judgment.
Moreover, Mercer represents fiduciaries in high-stakes bankruptcy and insolvency litigation on a contingency-fee basis.
The article also notes that Mercer Law LLC does not represent national banks because of the conflicts they pose in significant bankruptcy and insolvency engagements.
