H. Michael Miller helps his institutional lender clients provide financing for real estate development. He has had a hand in the development of many commercial, retail and multi-family projects in the Denver area, as well as other cities throughout the country.

For Michael, his clients’ needs are the top priority and it shows. During his four decades of practicing law, his practice has encompassed all types of business and corporate, financing and tax law. It all comes into play in real estate transactions, and Michael makes sure his clients are prepared for the expected and unforeseen issues that can arise.

Highlights of Michael’s experience include:

  • As special counsel to the city of Englewood, Colo., advised them in the successful redevelopment of a former 50-acre downtown shopping center into a mixed-use, transit-oriented development, which has become a model of new urbanism development.
  • Represented a group of lenders in the successful refinancing of the redevelopment of a 10-block area in central Denver.
  • Represented clients in property tax appeals, resulting in millions of dollars in reductions in valuations of numerous types of property, including over $17M this year in senior living facilities, as well as substantial savings for a national “big box” user.
