“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…”

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.

He 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.

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.
