I am excited to work alongside such a talented group of lawyers,” said Mr. Daneshrad, who holds a J.D. from NYU School of Law and a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley.

With a great depth of practice, SRZ advises on the formation and operation of a wide array of funds with varying investment strategies, including hedge funds, private equity funds, credit funds, distressed funds, real estate funds, activist funds and hybrid funds, among others.
