Prior to founding The Freyberg Law Group, Mark Freyberg spent the first 5 years of his career as a criminal prosecutor for the Bronx County District Attorney. There, he rose from a line Assistant District Attorney to Senior Supervising Appellate Attorney. During his tenure in the District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Freyberg was a member of the Special Litigation Unit, which handled the Office’s most sensitive and public matters.
In The Freyberg Law Group’s earliest years, the mid-1980s, clients were referred by Mark Freyberg’s father’s firm, which practiced real estate law. At that time the matters were confined to contract preparation and negotiation, and closings, in connection with the sale or purchase of real property. But quickly, Mark Freyberg developed a reputation for skilled representation and keen instincts, and the real estate practice broadened into counseling cooperative and condominium boards, managing agents and homeowners’ associations. Today, three decades later, The Freyberg Law Group represents residential and commercial properties throughout New York City, Westchester and Long Island, offering legal advice regarding governance issues, by-law drafting and interpretation, rules enforcement, vendor contracts, and sponsor-related matters. As a full-service firm, we also are prepared to step in when any real estate matter comes to involve litigation.
In the litigation arena, The Freyberg Law Group teams are always prepared to present a compelling case at trial. However, our greatest achievements are when we prevent matters from evolving into protracted litigation or formal criminal accusations. Often, by presenting well-crafted arguments to an adversary, exposing legal flaws early in the process, and/or demonstrating previously unknown facts, we can resolve a case “under the radar” and prevent it from ever going to trial. For example, we persuaded the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office to decline to prosecute our client, who was under investigation for participating in a stolen art scheme. Similarly, in connection with the U.S. Department of Justice tax evasion investigation of UBS account holders, we have secured full amnesty for our clients from the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation Division.
