Elizabeth Rice Merryweather

Elizabeth Rice Merryweather is a litigator and a member of Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group, with a particular focus on insurance-related litigation. Liz has a wide variety of litigation experience, representing clients in contract disputes and business torts, as well as financial, employment, environmental and municipal law matters.

What do you focus on?

My litigation practice involves managing commercial disputes through all phases of litigation. I also work with businesses and individuals before litigation begins to strategize their best options when facing a potential lawsuit.

What do you see on the horizon?

The insurance industry must continue to adapt to a changing environment, both in the business and natural world. I see data breaches, cyber security and climate change as some of the most significant risk areas presenting new challenges for this industry.
