The Activist Investing Annual Review 2016, published by Activist Insight in association with Schulte Roth & Zabel, analyzes statistics on campaigns, details emerging trends, profiles key players in the activism market and offers predictions. Partners and co-chairs of the firm’s global shareholder activism practice Marc Weingarten and Eleazer Klein, as well as London-based corporate and funds partner Jim McNally, contributed expert analyses to the review. Also included is an interview with partner Michael E. Swartz, who advises on proxy litigation handled by the firm. In addition to foreseeing increases in debt-based activism as well as an interest in mergers and acquisitions across the board, the review analyzes the factors that contributed to the continued rise of shareholder activism in 2015, and includes interviews, insights and the annual “Activist Top Ten” list that ranks activists by the impact they made in the past year.
As counsel on many of the highest-profile activist matters in recent years, the firm has unparalleled experience in the applicable corporate laws, securities laws and proxy rules on both sides of the Atlantic. We advise activists and “occasional activists,” as well as companies, boards of directors and shareholders, on a wide variety of corporate governance and control issues and activist and defensive strategies, from behind-the-scenes long-term partnerships with management to proxy contests and consent solicitations.
