Attorney Keith Meehan Joins Business Trial Group
Morgan & Morgan today announced that attorney Keith Meehan has joined the firm’s Business Trial Group (“BTG”), in the firm’s Tampa office.
Meehan brings to the BTG a deep knowledge of contractual disputes, business torts, real estate, professional malpractice, and bankruptcy adversary litigation.
“Keith has proven himself to be an excellent litigator, which has led to his sterling reputation in the Tampa legal and business community,” said BTG co-managing partner William Lewis. “We’re thrilled that he has decided to join our growing contingency-fee commercial litigation practice.
The Business Trial Group was founded in 2009 as the complex commercial litigation arm of Morgan & Morgan and is Florida’s only business litigation practice that operates solely on a contingency-fee basis. The BTG has grown to 20 attorneys, who have recovered tens-of-millions of dollars for businesses and individuals.
“A contingency fee model is rare in commercial litigation and I’m excited to join such a forward-thinking firm,” Meehan said. “Dispensing with expensive hourly rates levels the playing field for businesses and individuals who may not have the resources to pursue justice against larger, better-funded opponents.”
Meehan previously worked at a boutique commercial litigation and real estate firm in Tampa. A graduate of Emory University and Stetson College of Law, he also interned with the Honorable Michael G. Williamson of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division.
Meehan has earned the Florida Super Lawyers magazine “Rising Star” accolade in Business Litigation the last four years, which is awarded to the top 2.5 percent of young attorneys in the state. He was also honored as “Florida’s Legal Elite” by Florida Trend in Business Litigation – a distinction awarded to fewer than 2 percent of attorneys in the state of Florida.
