Meera R. Modi is a leading M&A attorney and trusted advisor to founders, executives and businesses, navigating them through mergers, acquisitions, sales and other strategic ventures.  In the M&A community, Meera is widely-regarded as a premier “deal quarterback” and “closer” who is adept at managing transactions successfully to closing, all while consistently achieving clients’ transaction goals and objectives.   Her solutions-based negotiating style is often recognized for being a key driver in getting deals across the finish line.  Over her years of practice, Meera and her team have created a niche practice of advising founders on strategic exit and liquidity options, whether to strategic buyers or financial buyers such as private equity firms and other institutional investors.  In addition, Meera has extensive experience with deals involving representation and warranty insurance, which experience has helped numerous sellers significantly minimize their post-sale transaction liability.

Beyond Meera’s M&A practice, she is generally regarded as a trusted legal advisor to owners/executives, often serving as primary outside general counsel to those companies with limited or no in-house legal capabilities.  In doing so, Meera works with business teams to implement legal strategy by negotiating and documenting arrangements involving customers, vendors, strategic partners, employees and owners.

Active in the community and the firm, Meera is a member of the Board of Directors of Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: ORRF) and its principal subsidiary, Orrstown Bank.  She also serves on the Board of Directors of Operation Medical and Tres Bonne Annee, both nonprofits. In addition, in 2020, Meera was recognized as a Lawyers on the Fast Track by The Legal Intellegencer, in 2022 she received the YWCA Greater Harrisburg’s 2022 Tribute to Women of Excellence award, and in 2015, Meera was selected as one of Central Penn Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” award recipients.
