Zach is Chair of Lowenstein Sandler's Capital Markets Litigation Group. He was spotlighted by Chambers USA in 2019 as one of just 11 leading trial lawyers in New York for his representation of institutional “buy-side” plaintiffs. Zach’s clients include foreign and domestic asset managers, as well as hedge funds, private equity funds and other investors. His trial practice focuses predominantly on securities and structured finance litigation, M&A disputes, secured and unsecured financing litigation, real estate investment disputes, intellectual property litigation, and bankruptcy-related litigation. He also routinely conducts arbitration proceedings in domestic and cross-border disputes.
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 each year from 2011 to 2019, and he was listed by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star before that. Additionally, Zach was an original member of the New York County Bar Association Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Hedge Fund Litigation.
Zach has tried cases involving a wide array of capital markets transactions and he has been adverse to virtually all of the major Wall Street banks. In the wake of the 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 also works closely with the SEC and other government authorities in their investigations and prosecutions of misconduct victimizing institutional investors.
