DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATES

ROBERT H. (BOBBY) WEST
Managing Partner

Bobby West is a Managing Partner at TriBridge Residential, where he oversees all development and construction. During his 13 years at TriBridge and his 5 years representing its affiliates in private legal practice beforehand, Bobby has structured, closed, and directed over $3 billion in transactions.  His initial roles focused on deals and tactics as General Counsel, but have evolved into strategic and leadership roles in recent years—first as President and COO with a focus on operations and managing people, and now more recently, focused on the development and construction divisions of the company, where he oversees the company’s most complex and challenging investments.

Bobby began his career as a commercial real estate and partnership lawyer with the firm of Liskow & Lewis in New Orleans and continued it with the firm of Smith Gambrell & Russell in Atlanta.  While at Smith Gambrell, Bobby began representing affiliates of TriBridge, leading ultimately to an offer to become General Counsel of Julian LeCraw & Company.  The transition from a linear, document-centric lawyer to a flexible, anything-is-possible developer was initially humbling but ultimately gratifying for Bobby, as he moved from General Counsel to “recovering” attorney.

Bobby received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from Louisiana State University, graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, and he received a Juris Doctorate degree from Emory University School of Law, graduating with distinction.  He is a member of the State Bar of Georgia and the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Apartment Association and the Georgia Apartment Association.  Bobby represents the apartment industry on the Technical Advisory Committee to the City of Atlanta Building Department.  He is a member of the Executive Committee of the National Multifamily Housing Council and is a 2015 graduate of the Leadership Lyceum program of the National Apartment Association.  Bobby is a frequent panelist at Emory University School of Law, where he has also served as an adjunct professor.
