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: Preparing for Shareholder Activism in the Wake of COVID-19.”

In the wake of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many companies may now be perceived as extremely attractive targets, even “sitting ducks,” for activist investors. During this 60-minute webinar, we will discuss several timely topics top-of-mind for companies concerned with being in the crosshairs of an activist investor, including recent trends in shareholder activism, how COVID-19 has made many companies more vulnerable to activist investors, how the playbook of activist investors may need to evolve in the wake of COVID-19, and what steps companies can take now to avoid being “sitting ducks” for activist investors.
