SRZ adds to Investment Management and M&A practices

Schulte Roth & Zabel has added Peter Greene, Benjamin Kozinn, and Eileen Overbaugh as partners based in the firm’s New York office.

Greene is an industry leader who has advised many of the leading private fund launches over the past 17 years. He advises clients on all matters related to the formation and structuring of private funds and management companies, compliance and regulatory requirements, and public to private investment opportunities. He has particular experience in insider trading determinations, including the purchase, analysis, and use of alternative/big data and related enforcement.
He joins as a co-leader of the SRZ Investment Management Practice, which for decades has been one of the most highly ranked practices in the United States and United Kingdom by the major ranking publications, including Chambers USA, Chambers Global, Preqin, The Legal 500 and Hedge Fund Research, Inc. (HFR).
Kozinn’s practice is in both Investment Management and Private Equity M&A, and he will join as a partner in both practice groups. Ben works with investment advisers and investors on fund formation, structuring, compensation and regulatory and compliance issues, including alternative data. In M&A, Kozinn focuses on middle market private equity and asset manager M&A, including complex middle market buyouts, take private transactions, minority stakes and venture investments. Ben has held both private practice and in-house roles, including General Counsel at a credit-focused hedge fund, Vice President and Associate General Counsel at Goldman, Sachs & Co, and Director of Hedge Fund Consulting at Deutsche Bank Securities.
Overbaugh joins as a partner in the Investment Management Group. Eileen advises hedge funds, venture funds, and other pooled vehicles on all matters related to private funds, including formation, structuring, investor negotiation, and ongoing operations. She negotiates seed and strategic investments, funds-of-one, managed account arrangements, and other alternative investment relationships. She also advises asset managers and their most senior employees and partners on employee compensation structures and separation arrangements. Eileen is ranked by Chambers USA as one of America’s Leading Lawyers for Business for her work in Investment Funds and Hedge Funds.
