R. Kelvin Antill - Senior Counsel

About Kelvin

Kelvin joined Rosenberg Martin Greenberg's Real Estate group in 2019. Kelvin has more than thirty years of commercial real estate experience, both as a lawyer and on the development side. As a lawyer, he has been in private practice and in-house, the latter serving, among other roles, as General Counsel of both a public Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and a private development company. In addition to being  a key member of the senior management teams, advising and assisting a Board of Directors, and counseling and providing strategic and legal advice to the executive team, Kelvin also worked closely with and assisted the development teams in acquiring, entitling, developing, obtaining municipal and state financial assistance for, and constructing, large retail shopping centers around the country.

As General Counsel, Kelvin was extensively involved in the sale and “taking private” of the REIT, while dealing with four levels of equity holders, and the subsequent sale of the private company to the largest owner of shopping centers in the country.

More recently, Kelvin also has moved to the business and development side where he was responsible for site acquisition, appearing before and negotiating with local and state officials, and obtaining the right to build 400,000 plus square foot projects around the country.
