Many years ago, Mr. Silverman guided me through what otherwise would have been a bewildering and complex process of starting my new interior design business. At each and every step, he made sure that I understood my options, considered relevant alternatives and was comfortable with the chosen path.
At that time, he and his firm (Silverman Sardar LLP) helped me choose the most appropriate form of business entity (C-Corporation versus S-Corporation versus Limited Liability Company, etc.) for my new venture, instructed me on naming conventions and other requirements for the new entity (particularly with respect to those terms which must be included in the entity name and those which cannot be included due to either trademark or other restrictions), drafted and filed the Articles of Formation for my new LLC with the Department of State, Division of Corporations, ensured that my new entity complied with New York State's Publication and Certification Requirements, worked with me and drafted an Operating Agreement for my new LLC, and assisted me with obtaining the various Federal and State income and sales tax documents and identification numbers required for my particular business.
As my business has grown, so have the issues it has had to deal with, and Mr. Silverman has continued to serve as an indispensable resource to it, as an advisor and true counselor to my company. To have his counsel means that you have an advisor truly worthy of the title. You will receive a highly strategic transactional- and litigation-oriented acumen, the benefit of what I view as a thorough consideration of business agreements and their provisions, the benefit of feedback filtered through what I see as his deep understanding of business issues and the differing personalities involved with those issues, as well as a high level of professionalism and honesty.
Today, Mr. Silverman continues to display a real loyalty and devotion to my business, as his and his firm's client, above all else (even when advising a particular course means less work (and thus fees to him and his firm)). I can reach him directly at almost anytime, and for those few times when I cannot immediately get through, he gets back to me promptly. I cannot review or recommend him highly enough. In my experience, he has been at the same time equal parts calmative and refreshing.
