In order to grow and advance in life, you need to constantly make some changes, and move out of your comfort zone. This is precisely what Sam Tabar did, by moving to Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP in mid October, 2013. He was formerly the head of capital introductions at the Merrill Lynch &Co.
Schulte Roth & Zabel is a multidisciplinary law firm, which was founded in 1969. They are one of the largest in their sector, and represent various firms working in the finance and investment business. Their staff is made up of both legal and business professionals. This allows them to properly serve their clientele.
The company has quite a number of attorneys, who all work to represent the managers of alternative investment firms. Over the last few years they have had various clients from Asia, who were interested in matters like the development of US regulations.
While talking to the Bloomberg via email, Mr. Tabar said that he would be working with New York based investors, while also working to explore the market in Asia. He further went on to say that hedge funds currently need even better legal advice, with the focus on regulations in the US being even more stringent. Mr. Tabar noted that the Asian market is growing, and therefore more attention needs to be paid to that sector. He however, said that the firm does not have any current plans, to open an office in the East.
