Silver Lake Legal

Construction, Insurance & Business Attorney Boston

Charles W. Cobb

This business was started to serve business clients better. Starting as a trial lawyer, I learned the Court system and insurance industry. As an advisor to commercial real estate owners, and as Corporate Counsel for a major Boston area construction manager, I see insurance contracts and construction legal issues from a business owner’s perspective.

Silver Lake Legal is set up to provide practical solutions for businesses – to provide just what you need but only that. My extensive networks enable pulling in the right expertise, under the right terms, to manage and to really target the clients’ problems. These same networks reach out to Silver Lake Legal to apply my skills to the business needs of other savvy clients.

Why Silver Lake?

In the Newton, Massachusetts Nonantum neighborhood, Silver Lake was not found on any map before 1855. Descriptions from the 1880’s attest to its charm and comment on the cutting of ice. Silver Lake was filled in and built over no later than the 1930’s.
