As a member of multiple Venable litigation teams, Megan is responsible for drafting and responding to complaints, conducting in-depth legal research and analysis, drafting motions and briefs, writing and responding to discovery requests, developing trial strategy, preparing witnesses for deposition and trial, and assisting in settlement negotiations.

She has argued numerous hearings for orders of protection on behalf of pro bono clients subjected to domestic violence.

Significant Matters

Part of a team that defended an international technology company in a multi-million-dollar breach of contract dispute. Venable negotiated a settlement on behalf of the client, resolving all claims against the client and ensuring the client’s retention of a substantial portion of the paid purchase price.

Assisted team that secured a $10.4 million jury verdict for a national healthcare HUD financing lender for unjust enrichment in the Circuit Court of Maryland for Montgomery County. The case involved complex issues arising out of a real estate loan made for the acquisition of a nursing home chain, subsequent securitization of those loans, sale of the commercial mortgage-backed securities, and intended HUD-guaranteed refinancing of the real estate loan.

Activities
