Meehan focuses her practice on public and private mergers and acquisitions, stock and asset acquisitions, purchases and sales of private companies, and offerings of debt and equity securities, primarily in the insurance, retail and healthcare sectors. She counsels clients on matters related to SEC filings and corporate governance matters. Meehan comes to Edwards Wildman from Day Pitney, where she practiced in the Corporate and Business Law Department.
“The depth and breadth of mergers and acquisitions experience Aileen brings is a great asset to our clients in New York and around the world,” said Charles R.

Meehan earned her undergraduate degree from Princeton University and her law degree from New York University School of Law. She is admitted to practice in New York.
