LegalZoom, the leading provider of online legal help, announced today that Nicole Miller will join the company as General Counsel. In this role, Miller will lead the company’s legal organization and provide strategic guidance on compliance, risk management, and corporate governance.
“With her deep legal expertise and perspective, Nicole is perfectly suited to join our executive team and lead our legal strategy,” said Dan Wernikoff, LegalZoom CEO. “I look forward to the insight and counsel she will bring as we continue to develop innovative products to further our mission of democratizing law.”
Miller joins LegalZoom from The Honest Company, where she served as General Counsel, building the legal and compliance teams from the ground up, and leading them to manage the commercial, corporate and risk sides of the business. Under her leadership, those teams created a legal infrastructure that enabled them to support fast-paced growth, and positioned the company for success. Prior to The Honest Company, Miller practiced corporate law at the law offices of Cooley and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher. She received her bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and her law degree from the University of Texas School of Law. Prior to law school, Miller worked on legislative policy in the California State Senate.
“LegalZoom’s mission to make legal help accessible to all is consistent with a core passion that has guided most of my personal, professional and educational life — that is to advocate, to simplify the complex, and to drive transparency in an effort to facilitate a shared understanding,” said Miller. “I am thrilled to be joining such a disruptive technology company as an advocate for democratizing law.”
