Olshan’s Activist Practice Ranked as the #1 Law Firm in Shareholder Activism by Insightia for 8th Consecutive Year

December 19, 2022

Insightia profiled the most prolific law and proxy solicitation firms this year and has ranked Olshan’s Shareholder Activism Practice as the #1 law firm in shareholder activism in the 2022 Insightia Adviser Awards as part of its December publication, a position it has held since the inception of the awards and now, for eight consecutive years. Insightia cited 121 activist campaigns for Olshan with the total average market cap at $4.98B. Andrew Freedman, Co-Chair of the practice, commented on the state of shareholder activism in 2022, noting that, “There was a little chill in the air during the pandemic when companies were getting some deferential treatment by proxy advisory firms, but that's now history we're moving back into a period that'll be more like what we saw in 2017 – 2019.” In 2023, Andy anticipates a proliferation of first-time activists entering the market: “They view it as the right time because of the market volatility and their access to capital to strike out on their own.
