BUILDING A TEAM
Roger Miller left school before his A Levels and started working with Albert Curtis in the legal department of a bank. He studied for his law degree one day a week and by the time he qualified at 27, already had ten years of work experience behind him. Having joined Curtis in 1976, Roger is now the senior partner and realises the importance of relationships with clients but also of building a strong team. For a solicitor to be good at that their job you have to be a people person and interact with people. Making Curtis Whiteford Crocker a nice place to work is something that clients notice.
COMMERCIAL LITIGATION AND INSOLVENCY
Having started in a bank’s in-house legal department, a lot of Roger’s early work dealt with debt recovery and money security management. Today the vast majority of his work deals with company & personal insolvency and the recovery of money and assets. Here his own experience of running a business helps. He’s helped build a small Curtis team into a firm now employing more than 50 people.
OUTSIDE THE LAW
For many years Roger’s family has competed on show horses at a top level. He still has a couple of horses and a menagerie of six dogs and seven cats. On the human side there are three children and one grandchild. He’s also a confessed petrol head.
