December 15, 2015

IR Magazine, citing a study by Activist Insight, ranked Olshan’s Activist & Equity Investment Practice as “the top of the list of law firms engaged to assist shareholders in activist campaigns this year, with almost four times as many campaigns as the next-most active law firm.” Law firms working on or against activist investors’ public campaigns were ranked and Olshan was placed on top of the list of law firms with 80 activist campaigns to date in 2015. The magazine piece even quotes from @ProxyFightGroup twitter handle adding “there’s still 27 days to go to reach 100 [campaigns]…” and noted some of Olshan’s prominent activist clients, such as Starboard Value and Lone Star Value Management.
