United States: Partner Meredith Cross Receives Linda Quinn Lifetime Achievement Award
Last Updated: June 11 2014

WilmerHale Partner Meredith Cross was recognized as the recipient of the Linda Quinn Lifetime Achievement Award during the annual Women's 100 Conference held by TheCorporateCounsel.net on June 2, 2014, in Washington DC.

The award is named in remembrance of Linda Quinn, the first female to serve as the Director of the Division of Corporate Finance of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) from 1986 to 1996. Cross was hired by Quinn in 1990 and later became the second female to serve as the Director of the Division of Corporate Finance of the SEC.

Prior to accepting the award, Cross spoke alongside former SEC Chair Elisse Walter in a panel discussion titled, "The Skinny on the SEC," which provided attendees an insider perspective on the SEC. Cross participated in a second panel near the end of the conference where attendees had an opportunity to ask questions on topics not previously covered throughout the day. The event was attended by a diverse group of 100 women from law firms and public and private corporations.

Cross rejoined the firm in early 2013 as a partner in the Securities and Transactional Departments following her tenure at the SEC.
