Joseph M. Miller is a partner in Crowell & Moring's Washington, D.C. office, a member of the firm's Antitrust and Health Care groups, and serves on the Health Care Group steering committee. Joe is an antitrust attorney with over 25 years’ experience in private practice, as a general counsel and as a federal enforcer with both the Federal Trade Commission and Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. His practice focuses on strategic transactional advice and counseling, government investigations, and merger review across industries with an emphasis on health care clients. His recent matters include:

  • Represented Humana before the Antitrust Division and in court in its attempted transaction with Aetna. 
  • Represented Freedom Communications before the Antitrust Division in the bankruptcy sale of the Orange County Register.
  • Representing a health system in a proposed merger.
  • Advised AT&T on several merger review issues before the Antitrust Division. 
  • Represented a health plan as a third party in an FTC pharmacy merger investigation.
  • Advising health care companies on their antitrust risk with regard to payer-provider contracting.
  • Antitrust compliance training for hospitals, health plans, and physician groups on information sharing, risk arrangements, and communications with competitors. 

Before joining Crowell in 2015, Joe was the general counsel of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the national trade association for the health insurance industry. Joe was with AHIP shortly after the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, which put him at the forefront of critical legal, regulatory, and policy issues facing the health industry. He supervised a team of attorneys on all aspects of AHIP's legal work, including policy development, strategic advice, and general corporate work. Joe also served as AHIP's policy lead on health care competition issues, including testimony before Congress, advocacy in FTC policy roundtables, and multiple health care symposia.

Before joining AHIP, Joe served as Assistant Chief of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division's Litigation 1 Section, where he was responsible for antitrust enforcement across a broad range of industries. Joe spearheaded the Division's competition advocacy program in the health care sector, providing advice and testimony to state and federal government officials. His previous experience also includes serving as lead attorney on DOJ’s antitrust investigations in multiple industries, including paper products, appliances, beer, newspapers, and steel. He started his legal career as a trial attorney in the Federal Trade Commission's Bureau of Competition.

Joe is a frequent presenter at AHLA, ABA Antitrust Section, trade associations, American Conference Institute, AHIP conferences, government agencies, and private organizations.
