Giles Miller

Giles Miller is a principal at Lynx Insights & Investigations and the founder of Lynx’s Los Angeles office.

Giles has over 20 years of experience managing investigations, asset searches and executive background checks for law firms, financial institutions, companies and non-profit organizations. He is an expert in leveraging public records, human source inquiries and other available evidence to identify key facts for his clients. He has managed hundreds of investigations in the United States and abroad, including pre-deal investigative due diligence, corporate contests, class-action defense, environmental contamination cases and employment-related litigation.

Giles conducts internal investigations for companies, schools, and non-profit organizations into allegations of wrongdoing, including harassment, fraud and abuse, so that leaders can make informed decisions to repair their institutions and obtain remedy for damages. Giles has worked with schools to evaluate and respond to reports of assaults that allegedly occurred decades earlier; with non-profit boards to evaluate and respond to reports of abusive and corrupt managers; and with companies to respond to theft of intellectual property and inventory.

In 2022, Giles led Lynx into a partnership with a Fillmore-based community empowerment organization, New Community Leadership Foundation (“NCLF”), and was awarded a contract to locate and contact approximately 10,000 people who were displaced from their homes in San Francisco in the federally-funded urban renewal programs of the 1960s and 1970s. Lynx and NCLF have trained and equipped a team of individuals with ties to the impacted communities in San Francisco to conduct investigations and outreach in this ongoing matter.

Prior to joining Lynx, Giles was an Associate Managing Director in the Los Angeles office of Kroll, an international investigative-services firm. In 2012, he was a lead investigator in Kroll’s investigation, conducted at the request of the President of the University of California (“UC”), into the events that led to the use of pepper spray at UC Davis on student protesters in November 2011. He was the primary author of Kroll’s investigative report, which was publicly released along with the findings of a task force led by former California Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso.

Giles is a graduate of Wesleyan University.
