Glaser Weil is thrilled to announce that Rory Miller, Partner in Glaser Weil’s Litigation Department, has been selected by Benchmark Litigation for its 2017 “Under 40 Hot List.” This is only the second year the publication has awarded this honor, which recognizes the significant legal achievements of Partners 40 years old or younger.
“Rory has played a central role in some of the most important litigation matters the Firm has handled and we are delighted that Benchmark Litigation recognized Rory’s dedication to obtaining great results for our clients,” said Patricia Glaser, Chair of the Firm’s Litigation Department.
Mr. Miller handles a wide variety of business, antitrust and intellectual property disputes from pre-litigation through trial and appeal in courts across the country. Mr. Miller has represented clients of all sizes from individuals to Fortune 100 companies, and has experience with the legal needs of a wide range of industries, including private equity, biotechnology, finance and insurance, entertainment, fashion and manufacturing.
In the past year alone, Mr. Miller has been involved with several significant cases, including representing a famous billionaire investment manager in his widely publicized lawsuit against his former company; representing a private equity firm, along with its senior executives, in several related contract disputes with former professionals at the firm; and serving as lead counsel in two cases representing several Mexican and United States-based industrial and food companies in litigation against Exportadora de Sal, S.A. de C.V. and Mitsubishi Corporation.
Mr. Miller’s inclusion on the “Under 40 Hot List” adds to the extensive list of accolades the Firm has already received from Benchmark Litigation in 2017. Glaser Weil is recognized in its top tier as a “Highly Recommended Firm,” which is an elite status achieved by only 26 law firms in California. Seven Glaser Weil attorneys received individual Benchmark distinctions, ranking them among the top litigators throughout California. Litigation Department Chair Patricia Glaser, along with Partners Robert Shapiro and Sean Riley, maintained their positions on this prestigious list of Litigation Stars; Jill Basinger is distinguished as a Future Star for a fourth year in a row; and Andrew Baum, Michael Cypers and Garland Kelley are honored as Litigation Stars in their inaugural rankings. Ms. Glaser is also recognized on Benchmark Litigation’s lists of “Top 250 Women in Litigation” and “Top 100 Trial Lawyers.”
