Meredith Senter has specialized in communications law since 1980. His current practice focuses on complex or novel matters before the Federal Communications Commission, particularly mergers and acquisitions and other investment transactions. Meredith frequently works with other law firms representing private equity and investment management firms in structuring acquisitions and investments to comply with the FCC’s ownership and attribution requirements.

Meredith understands clients’ need for a realistic assessment of regulatory issues and timelines. His goal is to find efficient solutions, not just identify potential problems.

Originally from North Carolina, Meredith returns to its beaches every summer. His winter passion is skiing in Utah.
