Schulte Roth & Zabel partners Eileen Overbaugh and Heather Wyckoff were recently included in The Hedge Fund Journal's 50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds 2022. Now in its tenth year, the publication recognizes prominent names in the alternative funds industry each year.

Eileen advises hedge funds, litigation finance funds, venture capital funds and other types of funds on formation, structuring, investor negotiations and operations. She has acted for some of the largest hedge fund launches in the past several years, with target year-one assets of up to $1 billion. Her practice includes negotiating bespoke governance and side letters for seeding, strategic investments, funds of one, co-investments and managed accounts. She also focuses on the business arrangements between the founders and principals of asset management firms, including economics and governance of the investment manager and general partner entities, as well as employee compensation and onboarding/separation matters. In particular, Eileen often represents female partners in negotiating the terms of their employment agreements and compensation arrangements.

Heather advises managers of private investment funds including hedge funds and open- and closed-end funds that invest in real estate, private credit, venture capital, private equity and other strategies, on formation, fundraising, and other operational and regulatory matters. She also advises on the negotiation of strategic relationships including seeding, co-investment deals and funds of one. She serves on SRZ’s Investment Committee which oversees the firm’s retirement fund, as well as the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Recruiting committees. Heather also devotes significant time to SRZ’s pro bono activities, leading a team of 11 lawyers representing the National Advocates for Pregnant Women, and co-authoring a multidisciplinary toolkit to educate healthcare providers, policymakers and others about the criminalization of pregnancy outcomes.
