Kerry J. Miller, a shareholder in Baker Donelson's New Orleans office, has extensive experience in commercial litigation, energy, environmental, product liability and mass tort, and class action matters. Mr. Miller was lead attorney for several high-profile and high-impact cases, including litigation stemming from the BP oil spill and the importation of Chinese manufactured drywall into the United States. In 2013, Mr. Miller spent four months in trial as one the lead trial attorneys in the BP oil spill matter. The trial court found that his client was not grossly negligent and therefore not liable for punitive damages.
Before entering private practice, Mr. Miller clerked for the Honorable James L. Dennis of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
