Gene Trowbridge is a nationally recognized securities attorney.
Gene has been in the commercial and investment real estate business continuously since 1972 and in the legal profession since 1996.
He is a member of the California Bar. And as the founding partner of Trowbridge Law Group LLP, Gene’s law practice concentrates on the syndication of commercial and investment real estate, through both debt and equity.
As a former syndicator, who for ten years raised investor capital; he served as the sponsor of sixteen investment groups, by raising equity from investors, through registered representatives in the broker-dealer community, once sending out 1,676 K1s in a single year.
He was responsible for the organization of those investment groups; the acquisition, management, and disposition of the real estate; and communications with the investors.
“The biggest mistake for new syndicators is trying to draft your own documents.”
“Investors need to take it upon themselves to get knowledgeable about mobile home parks, self-storage, multifamily. You need to have some education on the real estate.”
