Schulte Roth & Zabel

Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP
is a full-service law firm with offices in New York, Washington, D.C. and London. SRZ’s Structured Products & Derivatives Group is widely recognized as one of the most sophisticated and talented in the legal profession. We have been active in this market for over 20 years and all the lawyers on the team dedicate 100 percent of their time to this area.

We represent placement agents, insurers, issuers, dealers, investors and investment managers in offerings of a variety of investment products, including CLOs, private investment funds, asset-backed securities and structured products. Thanks to our diverse client base, our attorneys are not only fluent in securities law, but also have a deep understanding of the investment management, real estate, bank regulatory, tax and bankruptcy aspects of such transactions. We structure derivatives products, including unleveraged and leveraged OTC derivatives referencing bonds, loans, investment funds, commodities, equity securities, interest rate and currency, forwards, repurchase agreements, securities lending agreements, prime brokerage agreements and master netting agreements. In addition to structuring, drafting and negotiating these deals, we also represent clients with regard to regulatory filings, compliance and investigations.

At SRZ we understand how market pressure points and regulatory challenges can affect our clients’ businesses, and we have unparalleled experience in structuring solutions in the face of such conditions. In doing so, we utilize our firm’s multi-disciplinary expertise, drawing on the experience of attorneys in such relevant areas such as securities, bank regulatory, broker-dealer, tax, insolvency and ERISA. But while our attorneys’ collective experience is diverse, our focus is singular: to effectively and efficiently help our clients achieve their financing and risk-transfer needs, especially in times of market and regulatory turbulence.
