Mercer Oak is a law firm based in Chicago, IL. It was founded to leverage business and legal skills to better serve clients and to provide the close attention and predictability they deserve.
The founding partners met at Princeton University and wanted a logo and name that represented that time and their friendship.
They decided on the name Mercer Oak and the tree which stood for approximately 300 years in Princeton, New Jersey. It was named after a brigadier general under George Washington during the American Revolution. In January 1777, General Hugh Mercer was stabbed by an English Soldier and found refuge under this tree during the Battle of Princeton.
