Law firm Greenberg Traurig, which had the second biggest real estate division among New York City law firms according to The Real Deal’s 2010 ranking, added Peter Miller to its stable of real estate attorneys yesterday, the company said. Miller previously headed the real estate and finance practice group at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld and was a partner at Stroock & Stroock & Lavin, where he represented real estate firms in major transactions throughout the city, most notably Silverstein Properties in its acquisition of a leasehold interest in the World Trade Center. Miller went on to represent Silverstein in negotiations for five separate leases covering more than 10 million square feet. Miller also represented Bear Stearns in its acquisition of 383 Madison Avenue, Edward J. Minskoff Equities in five transactions throughout the city and the Gotham Organization in the development of 200 West 72nd Street. Robert Ivanhoe, chair of the firm’s real estate practice and New York office, called it “an honor” to bring someone of Miller’s reputation to the firm. In a statement, Miller said he has become familiar with the firm and chose to join, in part, because “Greenberg’s client list speaks for itself.” Greenberg Traurig has been on something of a hiring spree lately across all of its divisions, according to CEO Richard Rosenbaum. The firm’s real estate practice counts more than 200 members in offices around the world. TRD
