Davis Polk partners Arthur Golden and Thomas Reid and associate Laura Turano are the contributing editors to the inaugural edition of Getting the Deal Through: Shareholder Activism & Engagement 2016, a volume that provides an overview of the rapidly evolving global shareholder activism and engagement landscape.
2015 was a record-breaking year for shareholder activism and engagement, and despite some shareholder activists recently suffering public defeats and disappointing returns, we expect that in the United States and around the world shareholder activism is and will remain in sharp focus, and shareholder engagement is, and will continue to be, a leading and increasingly sophisticated priority. The linked editors’ introduction to the volume discusses shareholder activism and engagement trends and speculates on the area’s future direction.
