Baker & McKenzie, the world's premier global law firm, has appointed Kerry Miller to serve as its Director of Professional Responsibility.
Kerry joins Baker & McKenzie from Deloitte Global in Chicago, where he has worked for the last eight years as Deputy General Counsel, responsible for a variety of areas globally including ethics, internal investigations, conflicts, anti-corruption issues, civil litigation, and regulatory investigations into compliance with professional standards. Before Deloitte, Kerry was in-house counsel at Arthur Andersen for ten years, responsible for overseeing regulatory investigations and litigation, including with the SEC, State Boards of Accountancy and some of Arthur Andersen’s most significant cases, including the Enron and U.S. v. Arthur Andersen matters.
Prior to working in-house, Kerry was in private practice following his graduation from the University of Chicago Law School with a JD degree with honors in 1994, after earning his bachelors degree at Northwestern University. Kerry will continue to be located in Chicago reporting to and working closely with Peter Engstrom, Baker & McKenzie's General Counsel.
Kerry replaces Rodney Stone who has retired from Baker & McKenzie after nearly thirty five years at the Firm.
Eduardo Leite, Chairman of Baker & McKenzie comments, "I wish Kerry every success in his new role. Having such senior counsel will only bolster our ongoing efforts to ensure the highest quality of client service."
Kerry adds "I am delighted to be joining Baker & McKenzie and for the opportunity to work with the world’s leading global law firm."
