Morrison & Foerster Names Miller Managing Partner

Morrison & Foerster has named Brett Miller, a partner in the firm’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring Group, managing partner of its New York office.

Miller has a reputation leading complex restructurings, including representing the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Chapter 11 of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers reorganization was confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court in April, and the baseball team was sold for a record $2 billion.

He represents clients in Chapter 11 cases, out-of-court restructurings, bankruptcy-related acquisitions, cross-border insolvency matters, bankruptcy-related litigation and insolvency-sensitive transactions.

He also serves as co-chair of the Distressed Real Estate Group, a cross-disciplinary group that includes attorneys from the firm’s Bankruptcy & Restructuring Group, the Real Estate Group and the Litigation Department.

Miller received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center and his B.A. from Columbia University.
