Byron Alterman, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, grew up in a family that owned retail grocery stores across the Southeast where he saw the retailing industry first hand. Soon after receiving his undergraduate degree from University of Wisconsin in Madison, he began his career in the real estate industry in Atlanta. He gained early experience in a law firm where his main area of work focused on closings for a large home improvement store and reviewing title matters related to these closings. It was here that he decided to specialize in commercial real estate.
In 1999, Byron graduated from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. He worked for the retail leasing and commercial real estate practice group of Arnall Golden Gregory in Atlanta, Georgia where he gained experience in all facets of shopping center legal work. In 2009, Byron created the firm of Byron P. Alterman LLC to service the changing needs of the clients in the commercial real estate industry through a more flexible law firm model.
Byron is a frequent speaker at ICSC functions, and is the principal of the Continuing Education School for the ICSC in Atlanta.
