AUGUST 30, 2022 – Icard Merrill Shareholder and Real Estate Attorney Steven Greenberg has announced his retirement from the practice of law. Greenberg joined the firm in May of 1994 and has been board certified in real estate law by The Florida Bar since 1993. He has handled tens of thousands of closings over his career and has provided countless hours of education to realtors and affiliates in the region to help them stay current on legal issues.
“I am forever grateful to have been a partner at Icard Merrill for nearly 30 years. For many realtors, I handled their first closing and watched them overcome setbacks and celebrate triumphs,” said Greenberg. “Together, we survived the economic downturn of 2007 and the challenges presented by COVID. It has been gratifying to personally see so many realtors grow their real estate practice into successful careers.”
Greenberg has been an instructor and frequent lecturer for REALTOR® Association of Sarasota and Manatee (RASM) and other organizations. Greenberg served as an agent for most title underwriters and as general counsel to several real estate companies, advising clients on all aspects of real estate law. He was named to the list of The Best Lawyers in America® in 2022 and 2023.
Icard Merrill’s extensive real estate practice group continues to serve clients throughout the Suncoast region, offering skilled and comprehensive counsel in a diverse range of legal matters including closings, property valuation, buying or selling property, liens and titles, coastal and waterfront matters, planning and development, and more.
