In this role, he adjudicated disputes between covered entities and manufacturers. During his tenure at HHS, he concurrently served as Special Attorney for the Commercial Litigation Branch, Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

“Andy is an exceptional and dynamic addition to our Health and Managed Care Litigation Practice Group, and his esteemed background in both the public sector and private practice coupled with his extensive litigation and regulatory experience will enhance the Firm’s capabilities not only in Chicago but across the country,” said Ashlee Knuckey, Chicago Partner and Co-Chair of Locke Lord’s Health and Managed Care Litigation Practice Group. “We are incredibly excited to welcome Andy back home to Locke Lord as an integral part of our team.”

Miller focuses his practice on the interplay between litigation and regulatory issues affecting the health care industry. He has over 13 years of experience litigating complex, multiparty, multidistrict cases and proficiency with various regulatory issues, including FDA, ACA, 340B and HIPAA compliance. Miller is well versed in all pre-trial, trial and post-trial phases of federal court litigation.

“Locke Lord’s national presence paired with its exceptional commitment to clients across a broad range of practice groups offered me the ideal platform to come back to,” said Miller. “It’s a pleasure to return to the Firm and once again work alongside so many outstanding colleagues, while also being able to provide clients with a unique perspective to help them navigate today’s complex legal issues in the health care sector.”
