International law firm Greenberg Traurig has appointed global real estate partner Eric Rosedale as chair of international real estate with responsibility for coordinating the real estate practice outside the US.
In this new role, Rosedale will work closely with the global chairs of the real estate practice, Rob Ivanhoe and Corey Light, and other real estate leaders throughout the firm. These will include Tim Webb, who will serve as co-chair of international real estate, with a focus on the burgeoning real estate market in the UK and consult with Rosedale from time to time on other areas of strategic importance.
Rosedale has more than 15 years of international real estate experience and was most recently a co-head of global real estate at Dentons. He was instrumental in growing the European real estate practice at Weil Gotshal and the international real estate practice at Salans, which combined with Dentons in 2013. His focus is on real estate M&A and private equity for international real estate funds and private equity players, as well as developments and financings.
"Throughout my career, I have been driven by the opportunity to build top tier, cross border real estate teams, and the prospect of working with my old friends Rob Ivanhoe, Corey Light and many others at Greenberg Traurig in leveraging its exceptional US real estate practice globally is an extremely compelling and unique opportunity," Rosedale says.
"Eric will be another catalyst for integrating and growing our dynamic real estate practice globally, adding a high level of quality and value to the worldwide real estate client base," says Richard A Rosenbaum, chief executive officer for Greenberg Traurig. "Working hand in hand with country leaders such as Marek Grodek in Poland, Jan Kees Brandse in The Netherlands, and Luigi Santa Maria in Italy and of course co-chair Tim Webb in the critical London market, along with our strength in the US, Latin America, Asia, and Israel, Eric will no doubt assist us in becoming a leading international player."
