Biography

Michael Meadows concentrates his practice on bankruptcy, civil litigation involving business contracts and transactional matters.

Michael graduated from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2019, with a Certificate in Transactional Law. During his legal education, Michael focused his studies on legal issues faced by businesses at all stages of the business lifecycle, including the formation of legal entities, corporate governance, corporate tax, securities regulation, securitization and secured transactions. By obtaining a thorough understanding of the legal issues facing businesses, Michael was able to excel in his Bankruptcy course, where he earned a CALI Award for Academic Excellence.

Prior to joining Dressler Peters, LLC, Michael obtained practical experience working within the in-house legal departments of Fortune 500 companies and financial institutions. As a member of in-house legal departments in the medical device, food and beverage services and financial services industries, Michael drafted and negotiated a broad range of agreements, including commercial contracts, distribution and contribution agreements transferring assets between domestic and foreign entities and transactional documents effectuating multimillion-dollar transactions. Michael also has a thorough understanding of corporate governance, which stems from his experience drafting corporate formality documents necessary for the formation, maintenance and dissolution of legal entities as part of the in-house legal department for a global investment and advisory financial services firm.

As the son of a small business owner, Michael was exposed to the issues facing legal entities and their owners at a young age.
