Mayer Brown on Tuesday brought on board a former Simpson Thacher & Barlett project finance partner as part of an effort to boost the firm’s presence in New York. George Miller will be Mayer Brown’s first project finance partner in New York and will be tasked with working to build up a practice to complement similar efforts in the firm’s other outposts. “It seemed like an entrepreneurial opportunity for me,” he said.

Miller is the most recent of a string of lateral hires by Mayer Brown intended to substantially grow its New York operations. The firm has added nine partners in the city so far this year. In June, it named litigator Richard Spehr as managing partner for the office. “The main reason that I became the managing partner of New York was to continue to be very active in the lateral recruiting market and to grow the practice from its current size of 200 to something very significantly larger than 200,” Spehr said.
