Stockholder Activism

Stockholder activism is a rapidly developing area of the law. Our Corporate Counseling and Litigation Groups routinely work with boards of directors to develop legal strategies in response to actions taken by activist stockholders, including demands for certain actions by the board and litigation initiated by activist stockholders. Our Corporate Counseling and Litigation Groups also have substantial experience representing activist stockholders, including advice as to compliance with a corporation’s advance notice bylaws, the implications of selecting activist-affiliated nominees to a board, and negotiating support agreements in connection with the settlement of a proxy contest.
