Through our years of representing several hundred investment funds, we have developed a strong shareholder activism and activist investing practice along with expertise in the applicable securities laws, including Sections 13 and 16 of the Exchange Act. Our attorneys have a broad range of experience representing both activist investors as well as public companies that have been the targets of activist investors. We have provided counsel relating to a variety of activities from low level agitation to full blown proxy contests and/or tender offers in an effort to take control of a company.
Specific areas of our practice include:

  • Corporate Governance
  • Fiduciary Duties
  • Negotiating with management and board of directors
  • Demand/books and record requests
  • Shareholder resolutions and voting rights
  • Mergers and tender offers
  • Appraisal rights
  • Bondholder actions
  • Individual actions
