Jackson Walker partner Michael Meskill was quoted in an April 15, 2014, article in The Dallas Morning News.
The article, titled “EFH misses SEC deadline, is positioned for bankruptcy filing,” discussed Dallas–based power company, Energy Future Holdings, and its decision to delay filing its annual report on Form 10-K. As a result of this decision, Energy Future Holdings failed to timely file its Form 10-K for 2013.
“In such situations, the SEC typically does not take action,” Mr. Meskill said. “Companies are late filers all the time for one reason or another. This is policed through the stock markets and creditors.”
Mr. Meskill’s practice focuses on securities, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance matters, and general corporate law. Mr. Meskill represents buyers and sellers in public and private M&A transactions, issuers and underwriters in public and private debt and equity offerings, and companies and special board committees in corporate governance matters. Mr. Meskill is a certified public accountant in the State of Texas. Mr. Meskill was an auditor in the audit department of KPMG LLP from 1989 to 1993, where he was the “in-charge” auditor on numerous public and private company audit engagements. Mr. Meskill received his B.B.A. in Accounting from the University of Texas and his J.D., cum laude, from Southern Methodist University School of Law.
