WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Mr. Silfen is excellent at explaining new ideas and offering actionable advice.”
“He is available whenever I need him.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"Being an effective client advisor begins before a deal materializes – specifically in listening more than talking in order to fully comprehend client business objectives at the strategic level…knowledge that can then be baked into negotiating and documenting the deal, maximizing the chances for its success. This process builds knowledge of company culture, its decision-making process, its unique assets and technologies, its competition, and ultimately an actionable understanding of key decision-makers’ goals. My undergraduate degree in physics informs my approach to delivery of legal services – to investigate, analyze, understand and actualize – which, coupled with my experience at the SEC and as a client, enables me to help drive value into the deal. Ideally, we encourage clients to engage with us in this highly collaborative way and, together build value through thoughtful documentation and more successful transactions."
