It's a rough equivalent to "sincerely" or "respectfully".

Le meaning "with" and meas meaning "regard" (I think)

I guess your original question above 'What does le meas mean?,was provoked by you having seeing somewhere 'is mise le meas' - which is used as a sign off to letters and means 'respectfully yours' (more or less)
le meas - with respect
is mise - literally, 'it's me'
