WASHINGTON, D.C. 9 September 2013 – Hogan Lovells today announced that Cameron Cosby has joined the firm as a partner in its Tax practice.

Cosby’s practice focuses on federal income tax and real estate capital markets matters for real estate investment trusts (REITs), partnerships and joint ventures, and private equity and other private investment funds. He also regularly assists clients on real estate-related tax credits, energy projects and related tax credits, venture capital, and mergers and acquisitions.

Cosby joins from Hunton & Williams LLP where he was a partner in the Tax and Real Estate Capital Markets practices.

Cosby’s arrival bolsters Hogan Lovells’ leading REIT practice. He brings experience structuring transactions for issuers and underwriters in connection with initial public offerings and secondary public offerings of equity and debt securities of REITs, as well as representing acquirors and targets in mergers and acquisitions of public and private real estate companies and REITs.

“Cam brings to us over 20 years of experience to add to our already preeminent REIT and tax practices,” said Warren Gorrell, Co-CEO of Hogan Lovells. “His expertise in partnerships, as well as tax matters for public real estate companies and real estate funds, dovetails well with our Corporate practice.”

Prior to practicing law, Cosby was a senior accountant with Arthur Andersen & Co.
