Michael Miller has been assisting clients in connection with insurance, environmental, business, and intellectual property issues for approximately twenty years. Michael is a trial lawyer who has litigated and tried cases before judges and juries in state and federal courts across the country. Michael also assists clients with transactional matters, including complex insurance and annuity issues and complex environmental risk transfer issues.
Insurance Litigation. Michael's insurance litigation practice is national in scope. He has represented insurers in comprehensive environmental and commercial insurance coverage cases, in life and disability insurance coverage cases, in alleged fraud and Ponzi scheme cases, in RICO cases, and in cases involving annuities. Over the course of the past few years, Michael has been especially active handling cases arising out of the sale of life insurance policies (and interests therein) on the secondary market.
Structured Settlements. For several of the firm’s insurer clients, Michael provides representation in connection with attempts by "factoring companies" to effectuate purchases of personal injury structured settlement payment streams. In this context, Michael has assisted with drafting model legislation and has counseled insurers on developing protocols for responding to the issues raised by factoring transactions and the claims that often result from these transactions. Michael has developed a national reputation for successfully litigating these cases, and for successfully litigating other cases arising out of structured settlements. Michael was recently Co-Chairperson for the Legal Committee of the National Structured Settlement Trade Association (“NSSTA”), and he presents often at NSSTA meetings.
