Founded in 1969, Schulte Roth & Zabel is a multidisciplinary firm with 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.
“The entire Schulte team is fantastic and consistently exceeds our expectations. What I really like about them is their commercial knowledge and practical approach to supporting our business objectives.”
- Client quote from Chambers USA
More important, though, than what we do is how we work: in a team-oriented environment that yields efficient, effective solutions to our clients’ most complex matters.
We’re truly collaborative with you and with each other — anywhere in the world.
Our lawyers have wide-ranging capabilities and experience in their fields, which gives us the technical ability and experience we need to see matters through to the end. But we also know how to really work together — across practice areas and industry groups — to unpack complicated matters and find the most straightforward solutions for our clients.
Additionally, because our practices are so well integrated, we can assemble a multidisciplinary team at a moment’s notice — and ensure our clients get targeted expertise when and where they need it.
Our partners are the hands-on, sleeves-rolled-up types.
Schulte partners are deeply enmeshed in the work their teams are doing. Every member of our team — including the lead partner — works directly with clients, taking the time to fully understand the ins and outs of every matter. Because we stay tuned-in to clients’ evolving needs, we can provide better, more informed counsel; more effectively direct our teams; and avoid the kind of missteps that hurt high-profile matters.
Time and again, we’re chosen for the truly complex, sophisticated work.
Because of our skillset and structure, we’re a great match for high-profile, widely recognized matters, as well as those requiring specialized expertise. And since good work leads to more of the same, we work on a lot of both. See the latest >
