Sam Tabar is a man with many passions. Aside from his intense love for hosting events and traveling, the New Yorker has had a longstanding affinity with the financial and legal sectors.
Tabar graduated with honors from Oxford University in 2000, and in a precursor to joining the legal world, he pursued his higher education at Columbia Law School where he received his Masters Degree in law. Like most college graduates, Tabar was hoping to land a position with a top firm, but he never imagined he would be a part of one of the most prestigious law firms in the world, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. Tabar joined the team in 2001 as an Associate and quickly learned the ropes in the capital strategy and business development department.
Excited about the abundance of opportunities available in the legal sector, and driven by the idea of advancing his newfound career, Tabar left Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP after three years with the firm. He promptly accepted the Director and Head of Capital Strategy position at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Tabar was the head of the Asia-Pacific Region department and his fluency in Japanese facilitated his growth within the company.
In 2012, Tabar departed from Bank of America Merrill Lynch and accepted the position of Director at Adanac LLC, BVI. While at Adanac, Tabar was aching to utilize his law degree again, and he prepared himself for a triumphant return to the legal field. In 2013, he received just the opportunity he was looking for.
Schulte, Roth & Zabel LLP, one of the top law firms in the financial services sector, brought Tabar on board as a Senior Associate. Tabar was one of approximately 100 attorneys to advise clients on hedge fund formation, investment management and investigative issues. Tabar parted ways with Schulte, Roth & Zabel LLP in March of 2014.
Tabar prides himself on his ability to identify safer product investments for his clients, which CNBC highlights in their recent article, Sam Tabar Reveals Investment Tips for the New Year.
