Greg Gorospe is co-chair of Ice Miller’s Diversity & Inclusion Council and has been involved with diversity and inclusion leadership for nearly 20 years. Greg has spoken and performed trainings on a variety of diversity-related topics, including the importance of inclusion, unconscious bias, interrupting bias, and business ethics, and a variety of real estate and lending-related topics, including multifamily housing development, obtaining development incentives, leasing, construction lending and the Paycheck Protection Program.
 
Greg Gorospe is a partner in Ice Miller’s Real Estate Group. He helps clients assemble joint ventures; obtain or issue loans; acquire and dispose of assets and portfolios; negotiate construction contracts, development agreements and leases; and navigate workouts and distressed asset transactions. Greg has extensive experience in the multifamily housing, telecommunications, health care and retail sectors and with public/private partnerships.

Greg counsels clients on all sizes of transactions, including some that are very complex. He represented Verizon in its $5 billion lease-leaseback of over 11,000 U.S. cell towers and has counseled most of the other U.S. carriers and some foreign carriers in similar transactions. Greg has negotiated multiple, compatible debt facilities for clients like Sprint and Nextel, helping them to create solid financial structures out of a web of facilities including credit lines, revolvers, high-yield and investment grade debt issues, export facilities and inventory and receivables financings.

Greg negotiates leases for tenants and landlords in malls, strip centers, office parks, hospital campuses and warehouses. During his time as the Executive Vice President and General Counsel for WP Glimcher, he helped develop strategies to renovate, lease, acquire and dispose of Glimcher’s mall, life-style center and strip center properties. He also gained an appreciation for the complexities faced by executives, boards of directors, general counsels, and in-house legal teams, an experience which informs his service to such clients today.
