Who We Are

Miller Nash is an established firm with both strong traditions and modern sensibilities. Although our roots in the Pacific Northwest go back more than a century, we pride ourselves on being creative thinkers who are committed to serving our clients, our community, and each other in smart and innovative ways. Our attorneys and staff enjoy collaborating with one another, and it shows. Candidates and new members of our team often tell us that they are most impressed by the genuine collegiality and caring at our firm.

The clients we serve are a diverse group of businesses, non-profits, public entities, and individuals. We have organized our firm around the industries of our clients and invest our time to understand our clients businesses so we can better meet their needs. Our firm vision centers around delivering great client service, driven by our passion for devoting ourselves to our clients' legal needs as if they were our own.

Community involvement is a way of life at Miller Nash, as is our deep commitment to diversity and inclusion. This involvement extends beyond our own offices to the clients we serve and to the communities where we live and work. As part of our commitment, we have developed a women and minority business enterprise program that affords all attorneys the ability to attract and represent. at a reduced fee, small and emerging women and minority business enterprises.

Miller Nash is also proud to participate in Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule Certification program which measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered at least 30 percent women, attorneys of color, LGBTQ+, and attorneys with disabilities for, among other things, senior lateral positions. In 2020, we successfully completed Diversity Lab’s Mansfield 3.0 program and achieved Mansfield Certification Plus status. We are one of 117 leading law firms, and 50 corporate legal departments participating in the 2021 Mansfield 4.0 initiative which runs from July 2020 to July 2021.
