Zach is Chair of Lowenstein Sandler's Capital Markets Litigation Group. He represents the "buyside," including asset managers, hedge funds, and private equity funds, with a multistate and international trial practice, focusing on securities and structured finance litigation, M&A disputes, secured and unsecured financing matters, intellectual property disputes and bankruptcy-related litigation. He also routinely conducts arbitration proceedings in domestic and cross-border disputes.
Zach has tried cases involving a wide array of capital markets transactions and he has been adverse virtually all of the major Wall Street banks. In the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, Zach represented a European institution that managed one of the world's largest portfolios of subprime, synthetic CDOs, which were the "long" side of The Big Short. He has worked closely with the SEC and other government authorities in their investigations and prosecutions of the misconduct that led to the financial crisis.
Zach was spotlighted by Chambers USA in 2019 as one of just 11 leading lawyers in New York representing institutional plaintiffs. Chambers USA describes Zach as “a phenomenal lawyer who has a very strong following with hedge funds.” He has also been recognized in New York Super Lawyers every year since 2011 and was listed by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star a number of years prior. Additionally, he was an original member of the New York County Bar Association Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Hedge Fund Litigation.
