As one of the leading law firms serving the financial services industry, Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP (SRZ) serves clients from strategically located offices in New York, London and Washington, DC. SRZ's roots in the financial services industry extend back to the firm's founding in 1969, and, over the years, SRZ has maintained a stronghold as the key adviser to investment funds and financial institutions.
