Milber Makris Plousadis & Seiden, LLP (MMP&S), is a multi-disciplinary law firm supports and represents many of the region’s architects, engineers, and other design professionals. The company negotiates project contracts, counsels these design professionals when issues arise, and defends them against claims and lawsuits.
Partner Richard Davies, Hon. AIA and his team find it rewarding to work with “clients who are exceptionally creative and thoughtful designers and problem solvers – people who deeply appreciate the impact of their services upon the built environment and design to improve it.”
Richard’s long running service on the Board of the Center for Architecture + Design (the Center), home to the Collaborative’s office, has deepened his understanding of and appreciation for the Collaborative’s work and impact. This inspired him to provide financial support through MMP&S as well personally. Most recently as Chair of the Center’s Board, he has considered how its physical environment can further enhance the Collaborative’s mission.
MMP&S became a Corporate Champion to “support improvements in the built environment of underserved communities which have been, in many cases, ignored by those who, to date, have been determining what is built and where.” Richard and his partners appreciate how their leadership level support combined with their legal talents will advance the Collaborative’s programs.
Richard believes that “improving the built environment of our neighborhoods improves our city – and ultimately our personal and professional lives within it.” In his view, being a Corporate Champion advances this dynamic.
