NEW YORK – Dec. 6, 2018 – A real estate team from global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP represented Round Hill Capital in its new partnership with Cortland Partners, an Atlanta-based multifamily operator. The new partnership’s strategy focuses on providing European investors with access to the U.S. multifamily sector. To begin the joint venture, Round Hill Capital made its first U.S. investment through the acquisition of a 411-unit suburban apartment community in Atlanta.
“Greenberg Traurig’s platform allows us to represent clients seamlessly, regardless of what corner of the world they reside. Whether it is a first for the industry or a first for the client, we have the depth and breadth of resources to help our clients reach their business goals at a global scale,” Eric Rosedale and Howard R. Shapiro, the shareholders who led the Round Hill Capital representation, said.
Founded in 2002, Round Hill Capital, is a European-based real estate investment firm managing more than $6 billion of assets across eight European countries. The acquisition of the Atlanta apartment community represents Round Hill’s first U.S. investment; however, the firm’s principals have previously invested in the U.S. using personal capital. The investment firm’s strategy for the U.S. will continue to focus on investing in the Southeast.
