Shareholder Activism Defense: What In-House Counsel Need to Know


Event Description

Activist engagement with a company can range from something as unobtrusive as a request for a private meeting with management/the board to something as extreme as a full-blown proxy contest to replace all or part of the company’s board.  An activist can—and often does—strike without warning.  Companies – and the in-house counsel that guide them – need to be prepared.


Join us on Monday, November 6 at 12pm ET/9am PT for the next edition of our IHC Fundamentals Series as Nicole Perez, Partner at Baker Botts LLP discusses the key issues and trends in shareholder activism, and how boards and management can prepare for and defend against activist attacks.


The session will cover:


  • An overview of shareholder activism
  • Tactics commonly used by activists
  • Factors that attract activists to particular companies
  • How to assemble a team for activist defense
  • How management and the board can respond to and defend against an activist
  • Activism in M&A transactions
  • Key board decisions when faced by an activist and indicative timelines
  • The effect that the ESG movement has had on activist activity
  • The effect of the universal proxy rules
