OVERVIEW

Greg Miller defends companies in complex product liability and commercial disputes in both state and federal court. He represents some of the firm’s largest clients in multiple industries including aviation, manufacturing, technology, and publishing—in matters including commercial arbitrations, product liability, contract disputes, and other complex matters.

Greg helps clients identify and develop legal positions to swiftly and decisively resolve their cases. His recent trial successes include the dismissal of two class actions in the U.S. District Courts for the Middle District of Tennessee and the Northern District of Georgia, as well as the dismissal of a product liability suit brought in the Eastern District of Washington against an aviation firm. His trial court experience includes venues in Colorado, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, and Washington state. His recent appellate successes include an affirmance of a forum non conveniens dismissal by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in an aviation case and an affirmance of summary judgment by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in a product liability case. His appellate experience includes briefing appeals in courts including the California Court of Appeals, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Fifth Circuit, Ninth Circuit, Tenth Circuit, and Eleventh Circuit.

Greg’s ability to effectively counsel clients is informed by his extensive clerkship experience. Most recently, he clerked for the U.S. Supreme Court under Justice Clarence Thomas. Prior to that, he clerked for Judge Amul Thapar of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky (now of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit) and then-Chief Judge Ed Carnes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. In addition, Greg externed for Justice David Nahmias of the Supreme Court of Georgia.
