James E. Miller ’88 and Lauren Ezrol Klein ’88 will be honored by the ILR School with its highest awards at an April 18 celebration at The Pierre in Manhattan.

Managing partner at Miller Shah Attorneys at Law, Miller will receive the Judge William B. Groat Alumni Award, a tribute to professional accomplishments in the field. Miller concentrates his practice on financial services and whistleblower litigation, including ERISA, securities, corporate governance and employment matters. He has also represented clients in trade regulation matters and other complex commercial litigation, including patent, licensing and other intellectual property matters.
