Employment Practices Liability – Miller LLP has the experience, breadth, and technical expertise required to defend employers and their management against the full range of employment disputes. This includes wrongful discharge and termination, breach of contract, unfair competition, restrictive covenant and trade secrets matters, discrimination and workplace harassment, and civil rights claims. We quickly evaluate any action, assess the risks, exposures and transactional costs, and provide sound advice as to the resolution alternatives, whether it is confidential settlement, arbitration, or trial. Our clients include insurance carriers writing EPL insurance, self-insured companies (or high SIR) enterprises, small companies and multi-national publicly traded companies.
Insurance Practice – Risk Management, Coverage and Coverage Litigation – Miller LLP has worked extensively within Insurer Panel Counsel programs, ranging from the largest groups with international insurers to regional carriers just stepping into the marketplace. In these roles, we guide insurers as regional defense counsel, national monitoring counsel, and coverage and bad faith counsel. Our work includes defending insurers and their claims personnel in coverage and bad faith actions, preparing coverage opinions, prosecuting and defending declaratory relief and bad faith actions, insurer vs. insurer disputes (excess vs. primary, additional insurers, and contribution and indemnity actions), and reimbursement actions.
We are familiar with working within insurer claim platforms, including following Panel Guidelines, preparation of case budgets, initial and periodic reporting, large case/complex case conferences and meetings, and coordinating with underwriters. Miller LLP attorneys also know the regulatory issues affecting insurers, the actuarial components of an insurance program, expenses and indemnity reserves, and drafting of policy language.
