CCM alumnus Darrell D. Miller (BM Musical Theatre, 1985) has been named to Savoy Magazine’s prestigious 2015 “Most Influential Black Lawyers” list in recognition of his distinguished legal career, professionalism and outstanding commitment to community service.
The listing is comprised of the “best of the best” of Black lawyers who are partners within leading national law firms and also corporate counsel from Fortune 1000 corporations.
As diversity and inclusion for legal professionals continues to grow, Savoy’s listing of “top lawyers” emerges with an influential cross section of legal professionals representing a diverse range of expertise with national and global responsibilities.
A graduate of both Cincinnati’s School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) and CCM, Miller received his Juris Doctor from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1990, and he has gone on to become one of the world’s leading entertainment attorneys, working in film, television, theatre and digital media.
Today, Miller is the managing partner of Fox Rothschild LLP’s Los Angeles offices and the chair of the firm’s Entertainment Law Department. His client list includes Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett, star of the hit CBS program NCIS (and fellow Cincinnati-native and SCPA alumnus) Roscoe “Rocky“ Carroll, music mogul and film actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, reality television star NeNe Leakes and more.
Last April, Dunham Publishing Group released Miller’s first book, The 16th Minute of Fame, which details the serious perils that come with blindly embracing and enjoying the fleeting fun of celebrity fame and fast money. Part professional memoir, part insider’s guide to the entertainment industry and part manual for strategic career planning, The 16th Minute of Fame ultimately focuses on the pathways to a more successful life.
Earlier this spring, Miller was elected to serve on the UC Foundation Board of Trustees. Miller will join the board’s prestigious ranks with a term beginning in October 2015. You can learn more about this appointment by visiting uc.edu/foundation/news_events/press_releases/board_announcement_2015.
