Brown Gibbons Lang & Company Launches Real Estate Investment Banking Practice; Taps Seasoned Industry Banker to Lead Effort

Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL), a leading middle market investment bank, announced today that it has formed BGL Real Estate Advisors. BGL Real Estate Advisors will be headed by seasoned industry banker, Nico Bolzan, and will operate as an independent but affiliated division of Brown Gibbons Lang & Company. BGL Real Estate Advisors will provide comprehensive real estate investment banking services to the middle market which will include real estate advisory, debt and equity placements, financial restructuring, and asset acquisition and disposition.

Nico Bolzan brings ten years of experience in real estate investment banking to BGL and will be charged with building out the BGL Real Estate Advisors team. BGL has a long history of completed corporate financial transactions in the real estate service sector but has not operated across the full spectrum of real estate investment banking services. “With BGL’s global reach through its Global M&A partnership, we believe we can bring resources to American clients that have been in short supply of late in the U.S. Capital Market,” said Michael Gibbons, senior managing director and principal of BGL.

“BGL’s deep corporate finance, capital raising and restructuring expertise will be readily available to our real estate advisory team. This experience will provide a base for serving developers, owners and real estate enterprises of all types in this changing and difficult U.S. real estate market,” said Nico Bolzan. Our services will cover the full spectrum of asset classes, including multifamily, student housing, hospitality/leisure, office, retail, industrial, and senior and assisted living properties.
