Meghan Villalpando


Meghan represents clients in complex commercial litigation matters.

Meghan came to the practice of law after working as a grant writer in higher education. Her background had already helped her hone many of the skills she’d need as an attorney: writing, research, building a persuasive case and quickly learning new topics in depth. An innately curious person who aims to learn something new every day, Meghan chose to pursue a career as a litigator because of its research and writing emphasis. She loves the mental challenge litigation presents and the frequent new topics that cross her desk.

Prior to joining the firm as a full associate, Meghan served as a Husch Blackwell summer associate and received a broad overview of litigation practice groups. Over the summer, she had the opportunity to assist with trial preparation and attend a jury trial, which confirmed her enthusiasm. During law school, Meghan also served as a law clerk in Governor Tony Evers’s office, where her work on pardon applications impressed on her the long-term impact of legal decisions, and as an in-house legal clerk for Northwestern Mutual, an opportunity that gave her an inside perspective on the client experience.

Meghan is known for her listening skills and her ability to think on her feet in response to opposing arguments. Her time in moot court as a law student taught her the value of listening carefully to every word said by opposing counsel so that she can quickly and convincingly dismantle an argument. She also has a reputation as a diligent researcher who immediately dives deep into a client’s business and legal questions, not wanting to miss a single detail that might help in court.
