Darrell D. Miller Named Entertainment Lawyer of the Year by Beverly Hills Bar Association

The entertainment law division of the Beverly Hills Bar Association (BHBA) has announced Darrell D. Miller as its 2016 entertainment lawyer of the year.

Miller is a chair of Fox Rothschild LLP’s national entertainment department as well as a managing partner of the 750-attorney firm’s Los Angeles offices. The lawyer reworked his expertise into literary format with “The 16th Minute of Fame: An Insider’s Guide for Maintaining Success Beyond 15 Minutes of Fame,” in which he offers up his insight on sustaining success. Miller’s achievements will be recognized at an awards ceremony, which will include musical tributes from Ludacris, singer-songwriter Donald Lawrence and recording artist Brandy Norwood — all three of whom are Miller’s clients. Proceeds from the event will benefit BHBA’s education and community outreach programs.

“Darrell Miller is an outstanding attorney whose innovative and far-reaching strategies have had a tremendous impact on the field of entertainment law,” said BHBA entertainment law section chair Leigh Leshner. “Darrell’s background as a singer and performer, along with more than two decades of experience in entertainment law, give him a unique perspective and the ability to see the big picture while focusing on creating highly successful brands for his clients.”

Previous recipients of this honor include Ivy Kagan Bierman, L. Lee Phillips, Nina Shaw, Marty Singer, Ken Kleinberg, Eric Weissmann, Maren Christensen, Patti Felker, Barry Hirsch, Ken Ziffren, Tom Hansen, Stanton “Larry” Stein and Jay Cooper.

Variety is the media sponsor of the BHBA’s Entertainment Lawyer of the Year awards event, to be held at the Beverly Hilton on May 17.
