Mr. Miller represents employers of all sizes—from Fortune 500 companies to closely-held businesses—in a broad array of matters before federal and state courts, arbitral forums including FINRA, AAA, and JAMS, and administrative bodies including the EEOC and the New York State Division of Human Rights.  He has experience defending clients in single and multi-plaintiff actions involving complex compensation disputes, wage-and-hour issues, whistleblower and retaliation claims, discrimination claims, and accommodation issues.  He also litigates affirmative matters to enforce restrictive covenant agreements, prevent theft of trade secrets, and obtain redress for business-related torts.

Mr. Miller maintains a strong employment counseling relationship with clients, including in connection with corporate transactions.  He routinely provides advice on hiring, restructuring, executive compensation, management of personnel disputes, investigations of internal complaints, compliance with state and federal leave laws, wage-and-hour compliance, and best practices for employment policies and contracts.  

Prior to joining Jackson Lewis, Mr. Miller was a litigation associate at a respected regional law firm, and clerked for the Honorable Kenneth J. Grispin in the Superior Court of New Jersey.
