Fowler White Burnett has hired Miami attorney Daniel Milian to its commercial litigation practice group.
Milian will leave his Coral Gables private practice, the Law Office of Daniel A. Milian, which he ran for the better part of a decade. He is joining Fowler White’s Miami office as a shareholder.
“One of the main reasons I decided to move into this new direction is, to be frank, there were certain cases I was unable to handle on my own,” Milian said. “Another reason is administrative. Everything always came to me and now I have more time to practice.”
Milian focuses on commercial litigation, real estate litigation and condominium and homeowners association law. He sits as vice-chair of the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board for the City of Miami, which he joined almost a decade ago.
“I wanted to go ahead and influence the community I’ve been a part of my whole life,” he said. “It has definitely helped me understand trends and with recognition too.”
Managing shareholder Richard Wood says the firm is in expansion mode and the hire is one of many the firm is looking to make in 2019.
“We are excited that Daniel has joined the firm kicking off our 76th year of business,” said Wood. “We are strategically looking to grow all of our practice areas, particularly corporate transactional, and expand our footprint beyond the south Florida market.”
