Darren Miller focuses his practice on real estate construction and development and other transactional matters. He is a member of the firm’s Campus Infrastructure & Community Development team.

What do you focus on?

Construction

I represent owners, developers and lenders in structuring, negotiating and interpreting EPC, design-build, design construction and equipment purchase contracts for projects ranging from apartment complexes, shops and manufacturing facilities to more specialized institutional buildings such as breweries, hospitals, museums and schools.

I enjoy just how tangible the work I do is. One of my favorite projects involved representing an international client in the multi-million dollar design and construction of its flagship New York City retail store. In another, I helped a client negotiate the architect and construction contracts for a $13 million museum. Both projects are now complete and can be visited and enjoyed by the public.

Commercial real estate

In addition to my construction practice, I represent clients in structuring and negotiating a variety of commercial real estate transactions, from acquisitions and sales to leases.

What do you see on the horizon?

I’m following sustainability’s continuing movement from an aspirational trend to a real market influence and driver. More and more end users are demanding sustainable features in the spaces they are using, creating unique challenges and opportunities for owners and developers.
