Meredith Kotler represents companies, financial institutions, and their management and boards in high-stakes, critical company matters involving civil litigation and often related regulatory and other investigations.

She has a broad litigation practice, with a particular focus on securities, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial disputes.

As major M&A transactions and board-level controversies continue to receive scrutiny in Delaware courts and other jurisdictions, Meredith has defended clients in litigation relating to more than 25 transactions with a cumulative value of over $80 billion in the last five years.

She has played a leading role in many matters raising novel corporate governance issues, including the recent corporate control battle between National Amusements, Inc. and CBS Corporation, for which she was named “Litigator of the Week” by The American Lawyer.

She has also secured dismissals of significant securities actions for major financial institutions, corporations and their boards and management, private equity firms, and individual clients. Meredith regularly appears in federal and state courts around the country, both at the trial and appellate levels.

Meredith joined the firm as a partner in 2009. She was a partner of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati from 2004 to 2009. Before entering private practice, Meredith served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York from 1998 to 2004. During the last year and a half of her tenure, she was the Deputy Chief Appellate Attorney in the Civil Division.
