JOIN US FOR: Director Of The Year | Directors Summit


With over $130b in assets under management, and a professed goal of creating shareholder value through better run companies, shareholder activists continue to gain momentum by going after publicly traded companies. They are heavily funded, well organized, and know how to exploit weaknesses you may not know exist within your publicly traded company.

How can your organization avoid being the next target of a powerful shareholder activist attack?

Planning ahead is key, and a carefully crafted response is critical.

In the latest podcast, Kelli McCauley speaks with Derek Zaba of Sidley Austin about what your board and CEO need to do to make your organization less attractive to shareholder activists. Derek also shares how Board’s, CEO’s and their leadership team can successfully navigate the waters if an activist group indicates they have your organization in their sights.
