The Deal Pipeline Highlights Wolosky as One of the Top Two Activist Lawyers in the US

March 24, 2014

Activist Practice Chair Steve Wolosky was included in The Deal Pipeline (subscription required) story as one of the “best-known names” in shareholder activism and as one of the two leading activist lawyers in the United States. The article details Wolosky spearheading this practice area more than 20 years ago and Olshan as the only law firm to primarily represent the activist side of the shareholder-corporation equation. According to Wolosky, things have changed in the world of activism, “It’s a much more sophisticated world,” with investment being “more concentrated in the institutional holders.” Additionally, the article mentions that the 2014 proxy season looks to be even busier than last year with Olshan’s Activist Practice having already submitted 21 nomination notices for proxy contests at public companies and having reached 6 settlements thus far in 2014.
