Mr. Ruback also has significant experience with workout and restructuring matters.

“We are delighted to have Greg join SRZ. He is a highly skilled lawyer with an outstanding reputation for providing strategic counsel,” said David Efron, SRZ co-managing partner and co-head of the Investment Management Group. “Greg is an excellent addition to our leading finance and derivatives group, which represents some of the most prominent players in the market. His arrival will further strengthen our deep bench,” commented Marc Elovitz, SRZ co-managing partner and chair of the Investment Management Regulatory & Compliance Group.

“SRZ is known in the industry as a cutting-edge, commercial firm with a long tradition of providing best-in-class client service, and I am thrilled to be a part of this team,” said Mr. Ruback, who received his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law and his B.S. from Babson College.
