RICHMOND, Va. (Feb. 14, 2022) – Capital Square, a national investment sponsor specializing in tax-advantaged real estate offerings, announced today that it has promoted Jeffrey A. Gregor to chief legal officer.
“I have worked with Jeff Gregor for over 20 years, first at the Hirschler Fleischer law firm, where we led the Real Estate Securities Practice Group, and, then, as legal counsel to several sponsor firms in the same business niche as Capital Square,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square. “Capital Square was formed in 2012 by Jeff and several other experienced real estate executives who had worked together in prior sponsor firms. Capital Square has grown rapidly under Jeff’s leadership and the legal team of three lawyers and two paralegals he has assembled. Jeff and his legal team give Capital Square a competitive advantage over our competitors.”
Gregor joined Capital Square in 2013 as executive vice president and general counsel. During his eight years with the firm, he has helped launch 113 investment programs that have raised in excess of $2 billion. These include Delaware statutory trusts, qualified opportunity zone funds and a real estate investment trust that are collectively comprised of more than 145 real estate assets.
Gregor previously served in an identical capacity with Daymark Realty Advisors (formerly Grubb & Ellis Realty Investors and Triple Net Properties, LLC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Grubb & Ellis Company. During his tenure, he helped more than 5,200 clients and oversaw a nationwide commercial property portfolio of 33 million square feet, including more than 8,700 apartment units. Gregor was also Grubb & Ellis’ senior corporate and securities counsel, and a senior associate and member with Hirschler Fleischer’s real estate securities practice group in Richmond, Virginia.
“As one of the country’s premier sponsors of tax-advantaged real estate investment programs, Capital Square provides our investors with valuable opportunities to build and protect their assets,” said Gregor. “Having an experienced, in-house legal team is a tremendous asset to the company, the investors we serve and their financial advisors. I am very proud to lead this talented team of professionals as we continue to expand access to the benefits available through strategic real estate investment.”
Rogers added, “On a personal level, Jeff is a consummate professional, with the rare ability to stay calm in a storm and complete difficult projects quickly and cost-efficiently. Jeff is able to disagree without being disagreeable, he builds trust with colleagues as well as adversaries, which makes for a productive and pleasant work environment. I am proud to call Jeff a friend and colleague.”
Gregor earned his juris doctorate from the University of Richmond School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
