BoyarMiller Business Group

“Our commercial real estate practice is built on a strong foundation of experience in all facets of the industry.”

Hilary Tyson, Shareholder

The BoyarMiller Business Group comprises half of our firm’s practice and is dedicated to serving a full range of business and commercial needs for our clients. Our commitment is to deliver practical business solutions using creativity, legal and business expertise, as well as sheer tenacity.

Over our 27 years of practice, our Business Group has expanded and now includes comprehensive legal services in all areas of corporate, real estate and finance. Specifically, our business practice is comprised of skilled lawyers in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity/venture capital, capital formation/private placement, international business and real estate.

Some of our clients may not realize that we work for foreign companies that are expanding, starting or purchasing a business in the U.S. Our team lays the groundwork for their U.S.-based commerce by assisting with the development of financial models, business plans, and strategic initiatives, while providing counsel on complex legal issues.

Additionally, our real estate practice has grown extensively over the years and covers the entire spectrum of commercial real estate representation. Clients count on us for large-scale development transactions and structuring land ownership agreements, among other matters. We also have a specific expertise creating real estate related public-private partnerships.

We understand that our clients operate in a fast-moving, evolving business world. They need experienced counsel and a dedicated team to help them deal with competitive forces, changing demands, regulatory challenges and much more. In addition, we recognize that our clients need to operate cost effectively.

One of our key differentiators is the ability to provide high quality, sophisticated legal services at a competitive value. We meet clients’ needs efficiently by not overstaffing any deal or project. Even our largest matters rarely are staffed with more than a shareholder, an appropriately experienced associate and a paralegal.. Each performs the work most appropriate for the task at hand. Further, our Business Group lawyers are not pigeonholed with a narrow legal competency. Rather we are each well versed in all legal aspects of a transaction, thereby reducing the overall number of attorneys that will be billing on that matter. This assures an approach that delivers results and controls costs efficiently.

“We start with understanding our clients,” said Steve. “We don’t just counsel. We really invest ourselves in the success of each client toward the achievement of their business goals.”
