Elizabeth McNeill Silbert ’99

Silbert is a partner at King & Spalding, in the firm’s International Arbitration team.  Silbert handles cross-border disputes for corporate clients, mostly having to do with foreign investments and international contracts.  Her cases take her around the world, and she feels fortunate to be able to practice in her dream career of international law. Silbert has been employed with King & Spalding throughout her legal career, having started in the firm’s Houston office for six years. Silbert returned to her hometown of Atlanta in 2013 to be closer to family.

Silbert graduated from Northwestern University School of Law in 2008, after spending a couple of years post-college as a paralegal at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., with the Civil Fraud department. Prior to that, she attended Georgetown University and double-majored in French and Government.  Silbert’s interest in international work and love for French began at Pace Academy, while she was a French student in Madame Kohn’s seventh grade classroom and participated in Model UN.

Atlanta is Silbert’s home and she hopes to do more to give back to the community.  Silbert has two young children, Ben and John, ages 5 and 2 respectively, and an infinitely patient and loving husband David, who supports her in all of her travels.  They love Atlanta’s parks and hiking trails, and are weekend regulars at Goldbergs.
