Meera R. Modi focuses her practice on private and public mergers and acquisitions, commercial contracts, equity and debt investments, financings, investor-to-investor matters, and corporate governance matters for both corporate clients and non-profit entities.
Meera is an experienced M&A attorney and trusted legal advisor to businesses and executives throughout Pennsylvania and beyond.
As a trusted legal advisor, Meera often serves as primary outside general counsel to those companies with limited or no in-house legal capabilities. In doing so, Meera works with businesses to implement legal strategy by negotiating and documenting arrangements involving customers, vendors, strategic partners, employees and owners. Her reputation among clients is that of a problem solver who delivers cost-effective legal solutions.
In addition, Meera is a leading M&A attorney, who routinely navigates clients through mergers, acquisitions, sales and other strategic ventures – whether as lead counsel for sellers, buyers and investors or as local counsel for publicly-traded companies acquiring Pennsylvania-based businesses. In the Pennsylvania M&A community, Meera is widely-regarded as a premier “deal quarterback” and “closer” who steeps herself in the transaction, sweats the details, executes tirelessly and closes deals.
Active in the community and the firm, Meera is a member of the Board of Directors of Operation Medical and Tres Bonne Annee. In addition, in 2015, Meera was selected as one of Central Penn Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” award recipients. She is a frequent speaker on various legal topics for business organizations and trade groups.
