Ms. Silberzweig counsels a wide range of business enterprises, from the Fortune 100 to small entrepreneurs and start-up companies. She negotiates and closes the purchase, sale, and leasing of commercial real property, such as professional offices, media production facilities, shopping centers, and apartment buildings, the financing of mortgage, asset-based and construction transactions, as well as the acquisition, disposition, organization and restructuring of business entities. In addition, she handles residential real estate transactions for high profile individuals and companies.
Her practice also includes working closely with in-house counsel, client business groups and private clients on risk allocations in connection with building improvement projects and vendor arrangements, and structuring, negotiating and preparing vendor agreements and construction-related contracts, including construction management, design-build and architects’ agreements.
The cooperatives and condominiums she represents benefit from her comprehensive experience handling matters that involve corporate governance, building improvements, financing, commercial tenants, adjacent land owners, the purchase and sale of apartments by trusts, estates and entities, the enforcement of building policies, and day-to-day concerns of boards and apartment owners.
She has a knack for fielding unusual questions that require a steady answer and sound legal judgment.
Ms. Silberzweig received her B.A. at Northwestern University and earned her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School where she served as Notes and Comments Editor of the Brooklyn Journal of International Law. Upon graduation she joined the firm of Balber Pickard Maldonado & Van Der Tuin, P.C. where she was an associate and then a partner until joining Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP.
