Gov.-elect Matt Bevin has added another name to his roster with 10 days until he is sworn into office.

Lexington attorney Chad Meredith has been named as Bevin’s deputy general counsel in the Governor’s Office.

Meredith is an attorney with Ransdell and Roach in Lexington, where he practiced commercial litigation, constitutional law, banking litigation, civil rights
litigation, appellate advocacy, labor and employment litigation, and tort litigation, according to the firm’s website.

“Chad is an impressive lawyer with the rare distinction of work experience in both United States district and circuit courts,” said Bevin’s general counsel, Steve Pitt. “He will do an excellent job in service to the Commonwealth.”

Meredith began his career as a law clerk for Judge John M. Rogers on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, according to a press release. After his time with Rogers, Meredith clerked for Judge Amul R. Thapar on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

The 34-year-old worked at Louisville law firm Frost, Brown, Todd before joining Ransdell and Roach.

“I am honored to be given this opportunity to serve Governor Bevin and the people of Kentucky,” Meredith said in the release. “Governor Bevin has assembled a phenomenal team, and I am thrilled to join it. I look forward to helping the Governor implement his vision for the Commonwealth.”
