A NATIONAL PRACTICE The Rochester-based firm focuses on complex commercial litigation, securities fraud class actions, shareholder derivative cases and consumer class actions throughout the country. The firm believes strongly in the class action device to provide access to the judicial system. It carefully selects its cases, and has twice obtained “100 percent net recoveries” for nationwide classes. In those cases, class members received the entire amount of their damages and the defendants paid attorney fees on top of the 100 percent recoveries to the class. The firm also defends companies that are victimized by meritless class actions.
The attorneys are often asked to tackle cases throughout the United States. The firm was recently appointed co-lead counsel in the AIG securities litigation pending in the Southern District of New York. The case involves the widely publicized events leading to the government bailout of AIG. The firm has played a major part in other high-profile cases, including an options backdating case which settled for $117 million in 2008.
The firm also routinely handles business partnership and shareholder disputes and is widely recognized for its automotive supplier litigation. Recently, The Miller Law Firm was selected as a Go-To Law Firm® in Litigation in Fortune magazine.
In order to align its clients’ interests with its own, the firm routinely enters into innovative and contingent billing arrangements—even on commercial business disputes.
Miller, the firm’s founder, has recovered more than $600 million for consumers and shareholders. Newman has been with the firm since its start in 1996 and is the head of the firm’s automotive supplier litigation department.
