Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance

Richard J. Grossman Neil P. Stronski Demetrius A. Warrick

Partners Richard Grossman and Neil Stronski and counsel Demetrius Warrick take a look at recent trends in shareholder activism and discuss the outlook for 2022: Activists will pursue takeovers, underperforming de-SPACed companies will be vulnerable and ESG issues will remain central in many campaigns. In addition, changes to index fund policies and voting procedures could make outcomes less predictable.
