Allison Bernbach has joined Schulte Roth & Zabel as a partner in the firm’s New York office and a member of the Investment Management Regulatory & Compliance Group.
She joins SRZ from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, and brings more than 20 years of experience in the asset management business. Bernbach specializes in advising private fund managers on the development and implementation of compliance programs and navigating the increasingly complex regulatory landscape. Previously, she has also served as the chief compliance officer at a private equity firm and as in-house counsel at another large private firm.
“Fund managers are growing their businesses and facing greater regulatory oversight,” said Bernbach. “I am thrilled to join one of the largest private funds regulatory teams in the legal industry. I am looking to providing additional depth to the SRZ bench, especially with respect to private equity clients.”
David Nissenbaum, co-head of the firm’s Investment Management Group, welcomed Bernbach to the team. “Our private credit and private equity clients are at the forefront of many challenging regulatory and compliance issues, and Allison’s expertise will allow us to continue leading in helping our clients deal with those challenges,” he said.
Kelly Koscuiszka, partner in the firm’s Investment Management Regulatory & Compliance Group added that Bernbach’s experience, expertise and thought leadership will help SRZ guide clients through the “thicket of new regulatory requirements.”
