A BUSINESS BUILT ON
THE PURSUIT OF UNUSUAL, RISK ADJUSTED PERFORMANCE
Daniel S. Shapiro
In memoriam (1938 - 2016)
Daniel S. Shapiro was General Counsel for Park Vale Capital and was also a Founding Partner of the New York law firm Schulte Roth & Zabel, which has the largest hedge fund practice in the world, representing more than 50% of the funds on the recent Institutional Investor list of the 100 largest hedge fund groups.
In September 2002, Dan’s firm opened a London branch to service the European hedge fund industry. He moved to London to head the office, which has a number of experienced UK attorneys who specialise in hedge funds. Their London office received the “Legal Eagle Award” as best hedge fund law firm from Albourne Village, the on-line alternative investment professional community, and also the Hedge Fund Journal award for “Best US Law Firm in London”.
In September 2008, Dan took on an additional role at Park Vale in London and assists in business management and corporate development.
Dan advised hedge funds for over 30 years, and lectured and wrote extensively on all aspects of the hedge fund business. He graduated from Columbia College and Columbia Law School in the US (where he was Articles Editor of the Law Review), and had a Fulbright Fellowship at the London School of Economics.
Dan will be sorely missed.
