The National Law Review features Barbara Meeks’ move to MVA

The National Law Review
April 16, 2019

Charlotte Financial Regulatory Advice and Response Member Barbara Meeks’ move to MVA has gained even more traction this week. On April 15, The National Law Review published the article, “Industry Expertise & Emphasizing Women's Financial and Career Empowerment: Barbara S. Meeks Joins Moore & Van Allen.”  She states, “I think the key difference in a firm is you engage with more clients for a broader, industry-wide perspective.”  But again, as with working in-house, knowledge of the industry is crucial; to ensure you can provide your clients with advice that scans the horizons and anticipates the changes that will inevitably come. 

In-House and Law Firm Financial Services Regulatory Experience

While working in-house at Wells Fargo, Meeks led the Legal Department groups supporting commercial banking, commercial real estate, small business, wealth management finance, global banking and global retail brokerage.  She also supported international and wholesale activities in Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean, providing her plenty of opportunities to hone her knowledge of the financial services industry.

Wells Fargo Women’s Action Network

One of the major drivers for Meeks is ensuring women are empowered and have the opportunity to succeed professionally, and are given the resources to grow in their careers.  This includes making sure women at all stages of life are encouraged to develop financial literacy and independence.
