George Miller, a partner in the New York office, is a member of Mayer Brown’s Global Projects, Infrastructure and Asset Finance practices. In addition, he co-leads Mayer Brown’s Japan Client Initiative, aimed at strengthening and expanding outreach to Japanese clients. At a prior firm he helped open its Tokyo and Hong Kong offices and headed its Asia project finance practice for seven years. 

He concentrates his practice in international and domestic finance and leasing, in particular in the infrastructure, transportation and energy sectors. He has worked on numerous “Deals of the Year” and other high-profile transactions in the projects and infrastructure space.

In recent years he has represented Morgan Stanley as underwriter in the issuance of $600 million principal amount of tax-exempt private activity bonds for the benefit of the first phase of the All Aboard Florida Brightline passenger rail project, the Port Authority of Jamaica in the $600 million concession and lease of the Kingston Container Terminal to an affiliate of CMA CGM (which was named 2016 North America Port Deal of the Year by IJGlobal), and lenders in refinancings of a private bulk cargo port terminal in Florida and of a long-term concession over 23 service plazas on Interstates 95 and 395 and the Merritt and Wilbur Cross Parkways in Connecticut, and in the restructuring of project finance loans for four advanced proton cancer therapy centers across the United States. In 2011 he headed our lenders’ counsel engagements for Puerto Rico’s first toll road concession. In 2010, he led our Denver FasTracks Eagle P3 engagement, the 34-year concession to build and operate a portion of a commuter rail line in Denver, Colorado, in which we acted as designated financing parties’ counsel.
