Law360 Quotes Andrew Freedman on the Trends to Expect in Shareholder Activism in 2019

Firm News

Co-Head of Olshan’s Shareholder Activism Practice Andrew Freedman was quoted recently in a Law360 article (subscription required) outlining the trends expected in shareholder activism in 2019. Shareholder activism is expected to hit the ground running in 2019, carrying over the momentum from an action-packed year with an emphasis on challenging announced transactions and targeting companies outside of the U.S.  Freedman noted that “Activists were looked at for many years as the raiders, the barbarians at the gate. That taboo has largely disappeared over time as shareholder activism has gained favor as an important counterbalance to poor management and complacent governance. We’re at the point today where activist investing is viewed as a fundamental part of the checks and balances system of U.S. public company governance. And that’s starting to resonate worldwide.”
