Client Spotlight: The New Home Company’s Miek Harbur
In a recent edition, Vanguard Magazine highlighted the outstanding leadership of Miek Harbur, general counsel and corporate secretary to The New Home Company. Appointed as the company’s first in-house counsel at just 29 years old in 2016, Ms. Harbur used her broad range of experience as a corporate lawyer to help shape The New Home Co.’s approach to critical issues such as board governance, risk management and, most recently, a comprehensive response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ms. Harbur’s remarkable achievements in such a short time demonstrate that she embodies the same entrepreneurial spirit that has fueled The New Home Co.’s growth in the homebuilding industry.
Newmeyer Dillion is proud to have had the opportunity to work with Ms. Harbur since early in her tenure, when the firm began advising The New Home Co. on insurance coverage and risk management issues such as handling complex claims involving breadth of coverage and negotiating insurance and construction contracts for New Home’s projects. We are thrilled to count The New Home Co. as one of our valued clients.
