The Deal’s Shareholder Activism Virtual Seminar

Latham partner Josh Dubofsky will speak on the Staying Ahead of the Curve panel discussion, examining how companies prepare for the potential of activist insurgencies.

Latham Featured Panel

Staying Ahead of the Curve 

10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. EST – Thursday, February 25

Boards and management of publicly traded companies frequently turn to bankers, attorneys, proxy solicitors and other advisers, including stock watch services, in an attempt to prepare themselves for the potential onslaught of insurgent managers. C-suite executive directors, meanwhile, play “war games” of sorts, mapping out how they would respond if an activist came knocking with a laundry list of operational suggestions. This panel will examine how companies prepare for the potential of activist insurgencies, including starting a regular dialogue with their largest institutional investors. What tools are available for companies in preparing for activists, and how can companies use those tools to actively manage their businesses to preempt shareholder unrest?
