Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP


Founded in 1969, Schulte Roth & Zabel is a multidisciplinary firm with an international clientele. Over time, we have become known for two things: doing great work in the financial services sector — and many related industries — and doing things a little differently than many of our peers.

For one, our philosophy is distinct, and our specialties more finely honed. Instead of trying to be everything to everybody, we’ve grown organically and in ways that make sense for our clients’ industry demands and evolving needs. Today, we regularly advise clients on investment management, corporate, and transactional matters. We also provide counsel on securities regulatory compliance, enforcement, and investigative issues, as well as targeted specialty areas that we have developed over time.

At Schulte, promoting diversity, equity and inclusion is central to the firm’s values and a top priority. We want every member of our community to feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work and for each of us to have the opportunity to reach our full potential. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are more important than ever as our country faces unprecedented challenges. We are mindful of this as we imbed inclusion in everything that we do to strengthen our ability to provide effective and superior services to our clients. These core values are central to our success as a firm.
