Elizabeth and Ryan spoke on the first universal proxy fights and how they expect the new regime to impact activism in the future, the defense tactics companies employed last year like poison pills and burdensome bylaw amendments, how activists’ priorities and engagements changed in 2022, and how M&A and capital allocation activism will respond to rising interest rates and market volatility.
