Please join Morgan Lewis corporate partner and shareholder activism defense practice leader Keith E. Gottfried and corporate partner Sean M. Donahue for the webinar, “Shareholder Activism Defense: What You Need to Know About Shareholder Activism Preparedness and Defense for Small-Caps."

All too often shareholder activism is thought of as “one size fits all” when, in fact, it varies greatly depending on whether the target company is a small-cap or a large-cap. Join us for this 60 minute webinar as we examine these critical differences, including why the majority of activism campaigns are at small-caps, the goals of activists targeting small-caps, how activists approach small-caps differently than large-caps, the unique vulnerabilities of small-caps, and strategies for small-caps to prepare for, and respond to, activists.


Morgan Lewis’s nationally recognized shareholder activism defense practice is ranked near the top of most of the major league tables for activist defense law practices based on the number of publicly disclosed activism defense situations we have been involved in during the relevant period. Our shareholder activism defense practice advises public companies in a wide array of industries with respect to preparing for and/or responding to high-profile proxy contests, special meeting demands, consent solicitations, withhold and vote-no campaigns, shareholder proposals, and other activist shareholder campaigns as well as contests for corporate control and contested M&A situations. Our shareholder activism defense practice also advises on strategies for lessening a company’s vulnerability to activist shareholders, strategic communications, shareholder engagement, board composition enhancement, and board advisory and corporate governance matters.
