    Default meet sb., meet with sb.

    What is the difference between them (meet sb., meet with sb.)?

    I've read this today: "to meet with a client". Why was "with" used? Is it necessary here?

    Hi

    "Meet" is a transitive verb.

    The correct phrase is : meet a client

    To meet with someone in American English has slightly a different meaning from to meet someone
    If you meet with someone,you go to the same place as them, after a mutual arrangment, so as to talk ....
    I can meet with the Professor Ledoux next monday
