WLFC's 250th Member

Women Lawyers of Franklin County is very pleased to announce that Meghna Rao is WLFC’s first ever 250th member.

Meghna grew up in Twinsburg, Ohio. Fun fact about her hometown: it hosts the world’s largest annual gathering of twins. Meghna is a “double Buck,” having attended Ohio State for both undergraduate studies and law school. She graduated from Moritz in the spring of 2015 and was admitted to practice in November. After law school, Meghna joined Squire Patton Boggs, where she is a member of the litigation group. She focuses on general and complex civil litigation matters, including insurance coverage disputes, business torts, and breach of contract cases. Please help extend a very warm WLFC welcome to Meghna!
