Continuing its steady growth, Emergent LLP announces new partners, new offices, and new client services to start 2018.

Mikhail Ratner has joined Emergent as a partner, leading the firm’s New York commercial litigation and business advice practices in its new offices at 48 Wall Street. Mikhail specializes in federal and state business litigation matters ranging from shareholder rights and corporate dissolutions to real estate and e-commerce disputes. His 17 years of experience bridge large and small business interests.

Patricia E. Ronan, an accomplished trial and appellate lawyer with 16 years of experience in the state and federal courts of multiple states, will head the opening of Emergent’s newest office in Phoenix, Arizona. Barred in New York, California, and Arizona, Patricia will also lead the firm’s new employment law and civil rights practice areas in all three states.

Mikhail and Patricia are both Columbia Law School alumni. Prior to joining Emergent, Mikhail worked with several prominent New York firms, including Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP and Herrick Feinstein LLP before founding his own practice. While at Paul Weiss, Mikhail spearheaded the firm’s representation of 9/11 survivors and families before the federal Victim Compensation Fund, securing awards totaling $120 million.

Patricia also worked for almost a decade at prominent New York firms before joining Emergent, including Paul Weiss and Kramer Levin Naftals & Frankel LLP. After relocating to Arizona in 2011, Patricia worked with a number of small firms before founding her own practice.

Mikhail and Patricia widen Emergent’s array of litigation and transactional client services, strengthen the firm’s presence in New York, and open new frontiers in the Southwest.
