David Alan Miller is the managing partner of Graubard Miller and head of its Corporate and Securities Department. He joined the firm in 1982 and became a partner in 1987.

Mr. Miller has a wide-ranging practice that includes representing domestic and international clients, including many broker-dealers, in a variety of corporate transactions such as public and private offerings of equity and debt securities, mergers and acquisitions, and restructurings. He has been practicing securities law for over 40 years. Mr. Miller takes pride in the firm's ability to represent an emerging growth client in its formation, early stage financings, and IPO, and to continue to serve as its outside general counsel through all stages of client growth.

Mr. Miller was one of the creators of the financial product called a "SPAC," or "Special Purpose Acquisition Company," in 1993. Since that time, Graubard Miller has provided advice on hundreds of SPAC IPOs and more than 100 SPAC business combinations. As a result of his pioneering status, Mr. Miller has been actively involved in the SPAC marketplace longer than any other attorney in the world.

Mr. Miller has been ranked by Chambers and Partners USA as the "Senior Statesperson" of SPACs - "The Dean of the SPAC industry," "having advised clients on the product since its inception."

Mr. Miller is a member of the American Bar Association (Business Law Section, Committees on Federal Regulation of Securities and Mergers and Acquisitions); and the New York County Lawyers Association (Committee on Securities and Exchanges).

Mr. Miller has been listed in "Super Lawyers" every year since 2006.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
