Silverman page background
  • I met Jennifer through my client after she completed some legal trademark work for them. After working together, I realized that Jennifer is a gem. Her advice is thoughtful and direct, her recommendations are specific but macro in scope, and she’s a pleasure to work with. I’ve recommended her to 1 client and 3 friends and everyone has the same comment: she’s terrific. I highly recommend Jennifer.

  • I have worked with Jennifer Silverman for the better part of two decades. We share a number of clients. I can say unequivocally that she is an excellent intellectual property lawyer and I would recommend her without hesitation. She is lovely to deal with and puts client relationships first. She is creative and practical and always develops appropriate solutions that work for the client. She has built a strong team who share her values and commitment. In contentious situations, she is good at reaching compromise solutions but can also be tough and take that path where required.
