William Silberstein

In his 30 years of experience, Bill Silberstein has built a land conservation practice that has a national reputation for excellence. He has represented landowners and conservation organizations in hundreds of conservation easement transactions and in over 30 IRS audits of conservation easements. Bill helped the Forbes family create a conservation easement for its ranch in the San Luis Valley. Over 80,000 acres were included in the easement, the largest in Colorado.

Bill also represents clients in a wide variety of real estate developments, purchases, sales, leasing and financing transactions for ski resorts, office buildings, hotel properties, retail shopping centers, ranches, and rural recreational properties throughout the Rocky Mountain states. He has served as developers’ counsel for many brownfield developments and transit-oriented developments. The breadth of his practice allows Bill to assist property owners who are pursuing either development or preservation objectives. He helps clients achieve an appropriate balance between development and conservation that is sensitive to economic development in the region and quality of life that is so important to the regional economy.
