Greenberg Traurig hires Dentons London-based co-head of global real estate

Greenberg Traurig has hired Dentons London-based co-head of global real estate Eric Rosedale as its co-chair of international real estate.

The newly-created role will see Rosedale (pictured) given a mandate to co-ordinate the Miami-founded firm’s real estate practice outside of the US, spreading his time across London, Amsterdam and Warsaw, working alongside co-chair Tim Webb, who focuses on the burgeoning real estate market in the United Kingdom.

Rosedale focuses on real estate M&A and private equity for international real estate funds and private equity players, as well as developments and financings. Some of his key clients include Blackstone, GE Real Estate, CV Starr, Meyer Bergman, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, AIG Global Real Estate and Heitman International.

Before Dentons, Rosedale was co-chairman of Salans’ global real estate group, which was part of a tripartite merger bewteen SNR Denton and Canadian firm Fraser Milner Casgrain in 2013. Other former senior roles include co-chairman of European property and finance at Weil Gotshal & Manges and a member of the international real estate team at Jones Day.

Greenberg Traurig chief executive officer Richard Rosenbaum said: ‘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.’

Rosedale added: ‘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.’
