The Atlanta office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has added Christina B. Rogers as a shareholder and chair of the office’s Real Estate Practice. Rogers joins Greenberg Traurig from the Atlanta office of McKenna Long & Aldridge, where she was a partner.
Rogers’ practice concentrates on the representation of institutional real estate investors, including pension fund advisors, real estate investment trusts and permanent and construction lenders and borrowers.

Along with leading the Atlanta Real Estate Practice, Rogers will collaborate with other practice groups, including Corporate & Securities and Commercial Lending.
“Greenberg Traurig’s national Real Estate Practice is very strong and widely-recognized, and we had been searching for quite some time for an equally strong attorney to lead our Atlanta Real Estate Practice,” said Ted Blum, Co-Managing Shareholder of Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta office. “Working in tandem with leaders in our national Real Estate Practice, we conducted a careful search for an attorney whose knowledge and skillset in the industry would complement and enhance the firm’s strong real estate practice. Christina, with more than two decades of experience handling complex deals, was clearly the perfect candidate to fill this role.”
“Greenberg Traurig has a reputation of being a real force in real estate nationwide,” said Rogers. “I am thrilled to join the firm as we focus on growing the real estate practice in Atlanta.”
