Will Ladnier


Will Ladnier is a Partner with Milberg where he primarily practices in the areas of complex litigation and class action cases.

Mr. Ladnier originally grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. A lifelong Vols fan, he then moved to Knoxville to attend the University of Tennessee, where he graduated summa cum laude with degrees in Classics, History, and Political Science.

After he obtained his undergraduate degree, Mr. Ladnier attended William and Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia. While there, he was heavily involved as a competing member of the National Trial Team and as Articles Editor for the William & Mary Law Review. Before graduating cum laude, he worked with a number of judges in Virginia including Justice LeRoy F. Millette on the Supreme Court of Virginia.

Following law school, Mr. Ladnier returned to Knoxville and clerked with Chief Justice Sharon G. Lee on the Tennessee Supreme Court. He then accepted a position with Arnett, Draper & Hagood, focusing his practice on insurance defense and medical malpractice/healthcare liability defense, representing the largest hospital association in the region.

Mr. Ladnier joined the Milberg firm in 2018, shifting his practice to representing plaintiffs. His practice is focused on mislabeling, consumer product, and automotive class action litigation. He is dedicated to serving his clients, from initial filing, through discovery and trial, and through appeals, if necessary.

Mr. Ladnier is admitted to practice in Tennessee and California state court, and numerous federal district and appellate courts nationwide.

Outside the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, son, daughter, and dog, and if it’s a weekend, you’ll find him watching Vols and Titans football.
