Representing Small Businesses and Non-Profits

Larry A. Silverman, Esq
Larry A. Silverman, Esq

Thank you visiting my website. I am very excited to announce that I am opening my own private law practice.  After over 35 years as a practicing attorney, I have decided to open my own practice and to focus my practice on providing legal services to small businesses and nonprofits. This next step in my career follows two stints at Dickie McCamey & Chilcote and almost 10 years as Senior VP & General Counsel for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

My practice will focus on representing small businesses and nonprofits and my primary Practice Areas will be Contracts and other Transactions, Digital, Marketing and Advertising issues and Employment Law, because these are the areas of the law that most often impact such entities.

Practice Areas

Whether you need counsel to prepare an agreement, review a contract presented to you by the other party or negotiate the terms of the contract, I have the background and experience to provide these legal services. Read More->

New digital forms of reaching your customers, together with the more traditional forms of marketing and advertising, raise a host of legal challenges which, if not addressed by experienced counsel, can expose your small business or nonprofit to serious legal consequences. Read More->

Routine employment decisions are subject to a myriad of oft-times conflicting local, state and federal laws, regulations and court decisions. Failure to comply with any of these laws can subject your small business or nonprofit to claims for reinstatement, back pay, lost future wages and, in some cases, pain and suffering and punitive damages.

I have known Larry for the last 15 years. He has done work for me in a business setting and has also handled personal work for me as well. He is very personable, easy to work w/ and will get results for you. He knows the law very well, has the utmost integrity, is objective and will offer well thought out, experienced advice. I've been in many negotiation settings with him and he is highly intelligent, persistent and always puts the clients best interest first. I highly recommend him. You will be pleased you chose him.

"Z Brand Group is a small business, and as the CEO I am juggling many administrative tasks that are imperative but get in the way of time I need to dedicate to our work, clients and marketing. Attorney Silverman has taken on some of the more time consuming issues for us; negotiating leases, contracts, copyright issues among others. He has always added value, not just addressing the legal issues but also bringing advice and tactics to help us keep our overhead and exposure to risk down. It’s great to have sophisticated big firm counsel at small business pricing, and without the wait."
– Goldie Z. Ostrow President & CEO Z Brand Group
"I’ve had occasion to work closely with Larry over the last 7 years. Most recently he’s served as outside counsel to my company advising on a broad range of issues related to advertising, technology, and privacy law. Larry’s depth and breadth of experience made him the only choice when deal flow rapidly increased. He quickly identifies the core of every issue and crafts innovative solutions under strict time constraints. He’s always dependable and provides guidance to other lawyers and business folks alike in a prompt, professional, and easily digestible manner. In addition to Larry’s impressive legal skills, he’s personable, down-to-earth, and keeps fees to a minimum. I’d recommend him without hesitation!"
