    Speakers

    Meghan Rissmiller

    Hogan Lovells
    Meghan (Edwards-Ford) Rissmiller guides companies through the thicket of U.S. merger clearance. Whether before the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division or the Federal Trade Commission, Meghan has the experience and know-how to help companies develop effective clearance strategies, particularly where the transaction is complex and the antitrust issues are challenging. Meghan also counsels clients on a range of non-merger antitrust and consumer protection issues and has litigated antitrust cases in federal court and administrative actions. Meghan has developed particular knowledge of the Technology, Media and Telecommunications; Aerospace, Defense, and Government Services; and Automotive industries. Her deep understanding of the industries and business needs of her clients make her a trusted advisor to many global companies.

    Meghan joined Hogan & Hartson after clerking for the Honorable Jane R. Roth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The experience gave her valuable insight into judicial thinking and how to advocate successfully on behalf on one’s clients. Prior to attending law school, Meghan spent two years as a National Security Analyst for a major U.S. defense contractor based in McLean, VA. She developed valuable crisis management skills, gained an understanding of interagency relationships, and mastered the alphabet soup of U.S. Defense Department acronyms.

    In addition to maintaining a rigorous legal practice, Meghan is active in the American Bar Association’s Section of Antitrust Law. She currently is a Vice Chair of the Pricing Committee and formerly was a member of the editorial board of the Antitrust Source. Meghan is a longstanding member of Hogan Lovells’ Law School and Judicial Clerk Recruitment Committee and supports many of the firm’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
