Chairman’s Letter

Our team at BoyarMiller has invested our passion and commitment to our Mission and Core Values, providing our clients with innovative, visionary and value-added results. It’s because of you – our clients, referral sources and friends of the firm – that we are able to practice purposefully and make a difference.  So, on behalf of the entire team, I thank you.

Whenever I walk through our firm I am impressed by the collaboration I witness and the conversations I hear. Our teams thrive on discussing legal strategies and business solutions that meet our clients’ objectives.

It is exciting to see our shareholders and associates work together, as colleagues and mentors, toward the goal of delivering exceptional legal counsel. I am very proud of the work environment at BoyarMiller and invite you to observe it as well. We regularly host client/attorney meetings at our office to discuss strategies and explore options that are focused on client success. We are here to help you.

Levy Park opening marks our office location anniversary

We have enjoyed Kirby Grove as our office location for a year. The space is such a comfortable and productive working environment that fosters our ability for personal connections and frequent interactions. We are working more effectively and efficiently as we collaborate with each other and our clients.

Now it’s about to get even better. Our building borders Levy Park, a hidden gem of the Upper Kirby District area. Levy Park has been undergoing a complete transformation by Midway Companies and the Upper Kirby Redevelopment Authority, among others. It will be an active and vibrant gathering place and we look forward to its public grand opening February 25. Learn more about Levy Park here.

Accolades and new Legal Alerts

We are excited that three BoyarMiller clients received ULI 2017 Development of Distinction Awards. In the not-for-profit category, the 2017 award went to MATCH (Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston). The award for the urban open space category went to both the 160-acre Buffalo Bayou Park by Buffalo Bayou Partnership and the City of Houston, and McGovern Centennial Gardens by the Hermann Park Conservancy.

Also, congratulations to friend of the firm, Midway, for winning the Project of the Decade People’s Choice award. It was presented for one of Houston’s most transformational multi-use projects – CITYCENTRE – in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Development of Distinction Awards.

Whitney Brieck, an associate in our Litigation Group, has been elected to membership in the Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation. Each year, the top one-third of one percent of Texas attorneys are invited to become Fellows of the foundation, selected for outstanding professional achievements and a commitment to the improvement of the justice system throughout the state of Texas. Way to go Whitney.

We are also proud of Shareholder David Stockel, who was named a “Top Lawyer” by Houstonia Magazine.

Kasi Chadwick published four new legal alerts in January to keep our clients and friends up to date on new bills, litigation issues and legal opinions that can impact business. We invite you to share our legal alerts throughout your organization and with other business influencers.
