Schulte Roth & Zabel’s 2018 Shareholder Activism Insight report, published in association with Activist Insight and Okapi Partners, analyzes the results of an August 2018 survey of activist funds that have engaged almost 300 companies since 2013. The survey was filled out by 36 respondents from different activist firms, including participants in some of the largest and most high-profile activist situations to date. Those surveyed were asked about their experiences with shareholder activism in their respective regions and their expectations for activity in the next 12 months.
Marc Weingarten and Ele Klein, partners and co-chairs of the firm’s global Shareholder Activism Group, contributed expert commentary. The report also features Jim McNally, London-based shareholder activism, corporate and funds partner, Michael Swartz, litigation partner who serves as co-chair of the Litigation Group and head of the shareholder activism litigation practice and former Schulte lawyer Aneliya Crawford.
