Profile: Christopher Hilditch

Schulte Roth & Zabel partner and co-head of the firm’s London office


Schulte Roth & Zabel (SRZ) investment management partner Christopher Hilditch was recognised for his “Outstanding Contribution” to the industry at The Hedge Fund Journal’s 2017 Awards event, during which the firm also received the “Best Global Law Firm” award. Hilditch and SRZ partner Josh Dambacher serve as co-heads of the firm’s London office, which was opened in 2002. A pioneer in the alternative investment management industry, SRZ was founded in 1969 and is headquartered in New York City.

At school, Hilditch had contemplated a career in the British Army, before work placements at law firms piqued his interest in the legal profession. After studying Classics at Oxford University’s Pembroke College, Hilditch joined Simmons & Simmons, which sponsored his law conversion course and solicitor training. Six years after qualifying, the precocious offer of a partnership and heading up a funds practice lured Hilditch to another firm, but only two years after that, in 2002, he was singled out for an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

At that time, SRZ had planned to set up a London office, and “there were only two other law firms that were really active in the London hedge fund market, where the European industry was just beginning to expand rapidly,” he recalls. Hilditch anticipated SRZ’s subsequent success, surmising that “as SRZ was exceptionally well known in the US, it had the pedigree and reputation to make a difference in London.”
