Biography

As co-chair of the Transportation, Cargo and Logistics practice and head of Wilson Elser's national emergency response team, Stuart Miller focuses on transportation matters, frequently involving himself in pre-suit liability investigations and determination of causation. He also enjoys a well-earned reputation in retail and restaurant defense, helping to manage and mitigate related risks and proactively resolving litigation. A trusted advocate and formidable adviser to several Fortune 500 companies and other prominent self-insureds, Stuart tackles each case with immense enthusiasm, backed by the stamina to take it to successful conclusion. Clients frequently involve Stuart at the earliest stages of a claim given his remarkable negotiating skills and ability to reach resolutions before litigation might otherwise commence. Accustomed to arriving at accident scenes at all hours of the day and night, Stuart immediately engages himself, gathering the information and witness insights that can help clients manage investigatory demands and fortify potential future litigation defenses.

Stuart practices out of the firm's New York City and White Plains offices and is admitted to the bar in New York, New Jersey and Florida. He enjoys extensive experience in state, federal and appellate courts in these and other jurisdictions, defending clients in the full range of civil litigation matters, including class actions. He also provides corporate and commercial assistance to his clients in connection with real estate transactions, shareholder agreements and other types of contractual matters.

Professional/Community Activities

As a licensed provider of continuing education courses in Kentucky, New Hampshire, Texas, Florida and Virginia, Stuart frequently presents seminars to risk management departments, third party administrators and carriers. He also is a regular presenter at Risk Management Society events at the national, regional and local levels. Stuart is active in diversity efforts within and outside of the firm such as hosting a "Law Day" at Wilson Elser for college students and attending the annual conferences of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association and National Asian Pacific Bar Association.

Areas of Focus

Transportation

Stuart is designated national counsel to major transportation and logistics companies, acting as the gatekeeper and national coordinator of all liability claims. He leads mediations, settlement conferences and trials throughout the United States, working alongside local counsel. Stuart also defends several national long-haul and local trucking companies, taxi and livery fleets, and bus and ambulette companies in catastrophic personal injury, uninsured motorist, no-fault and PIP subrogation cases. Understanding the importance of "boots on the ground" in crisis situations, Stuart oversees a 24/7 national emergency response team that responds to catastrophic trucking losses. He is a member of the Trucking Industry Defense Association.

Retail/Hospitality

Stuart enjoys a well-earned reputation in retail and restaurant defense, helping to manage and mitigate related risks and proactively resolving litigation. Clients frequently involve Stuart at the earliest stages of a case given his remarkable negotiating skills and ability to reach resolutions before litigation might otherwise commence. Stuart defends retail and restaurant operations in the areas of personal injury, premises liability, dram shop law, product liability, toxic tort, employment discrimination, intellectual property infringement and myriad other claims. He also provides corporate and commercial assistance to his clients in connection with real estate transactions, shareholder agreements and other types of contractual matters.

Insurance/Self-Insureds

Stuart oversees several sizeable accounts where the clients have substantial self-insured retentions. He strategizes with the account risk managers and general counsel on case management and corporate consistency. He also works with a national team of Wilson Elser attorneys to handle all types of claims for these clients, including trucking, construction, premises security and liability, loss subrogation and complex product liability matters. Stuart is uniquely qualified to help clients in matters regarding the Medicare Secondary Payor Act and settlements relative to the potential liability under the Act for tortfeasors and their insurers in regards to personal injury matters where Medicare may have an interest.
