Sam Tabar’s Rise to Succession
New York City attorney, Sam Tabar has the experience and skills that cover a broad range of legal areas. In corporate, Tabar’s emphasis is primarily in financial markets, advising clients on various aspects of their organization and continued operations, in multiple jurisdictions. In business development, his talents include negotiating contracts, facilitating contract compliance, and structuring competitive strategic alliances and relationships. Overall, his clients have included hedge funds, private equity funds, investment banks, and insurance companies.
A Rapid Start
After excelling at Oxford University, with honors, LinkedIn shows Tabar enrolled at Columbia Law School. He began his career as an associate at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP, tasked with advising high net worth clients in investment management activities that included transactional and regulatory issues related to their business, their operations, and various financing activities. Considered a strong candidate for a number of positions, Tabar moved on to PMA Investment Advisors. Drawing on his proven expertise in business development, and developing a great reputation at PMA, he was promoted to Managing Director, tasked with operating a $2 billion dollar hedge fund account.
Sam Tabar left PMA Investment Advisors to join Bank of America in 2011, as the Director and Head of Capital Strategy, and by 2013, Tabar was attracted to the opportunities offered by Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP. Taking charge as Senior Associate, he advised on structuring and instituting investment funds, in particular hedge funds, and investment transactions and relations with investors. Tabar also advised on regulatory issues impacting funds and their managers.
Continuity and Growth
Tabar has always had an unwavering sense of his own destiny. In 2014, he left Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP and tapped into the potential of a start-up company, THINX. The company develops undergarments for women, specifically targeted during a women’s menstruation. The “period-panties” are composed of a special absorbent fabric to ensure the flow of a woman’s monthly period does not ruin her underwear. This inspired Sam Tabar to undertake his own mission with AWI, a charity to help African youth.
Sam Tabar’s biggest inspiration is perhaps the persistent question of “how can he help others?” While he doesn’t consider himself an activist, he is committed to finding ways to help others. Instagram does a great job of showcasing how Sam goes about this journey.
