Sam Tabar: Combining Law and Business

Home | Associate Editor | Sam Tabar: Combining Law and Business

After completing his Master with Honors from Oxford University, Sam Tabar cast about for a law school. Colombia University was fortunate enough to gain his custom. He worked very hard, long hours at Colombia still finding time to act as an Associate Editor of the Colombia Law Review, maintain his French language proficiency and add Japanese competency as well – already laying a foundation for his future in international business.

Upon graduation, he joined Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP, a prestigious New York City law firm to start his career. Bloomberg says that Sam Tabar worked with clients to establish hedge funds, create investment management agreements, and manage employment challenges, and address regulatory and compliance issues for their businesses.

Ready to take on the finance industry, Tabar left Skadden in 2004 to work for a Hong Kong-based division of Sparx Group Co. First as counsel and then as Managing Director and Co-Head of Business Development, he managed all aspects of marketing and investor relations for a $2 billion hedge fund – that’s ‘billion’ with a ‘b’ – not bad for a man a few years out of law school.

This experience prepared him for the success in business ventures that awaited him. He was key in raising $1.2 billion in assets for his hedge fund and managed many successful investor introductions. From Sparx, Bank of America Merrill Lynch beckoned him to be its Director and Head of Capital Strategy for the Asia-Pacific area where he remained until 2012, assisting and managing capital allocations between fund managers and investors.

Returning to his first love, the law, Tabar joined Schulte Rothe & Zabel LLP, to work with their hedge funds as an established, experienced expert in that area. His areas of responsibility included employment issues and regulatory and compliance issues.

Today he turns his considerable talents to the FullCycle Energy Fund as COO. This company is dedicated to redefining the human species’ as regards waste. This is a long-term project still in its infancy about which Tabar is very excited as it combines his business know-how with efforts to improve the world for all of us, not just for a few investors.
