Latham & Watkins is sponsoring The Deal’s Shareholder Activism Virtual Seminar – a virtual conference exploring the strategies companies are employing to defend themselves amid the pandemic and how activists are approaching their campaigns during one of the biggest economic disruptions of the past century.
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?
