Partners Armand Grumberg, George Knighton and Simon Toms review Skadden’s fourth annual survey of the European activist landscape reports. The survey’s key findings include:

  • The number of activist campaigns launched against European companies rose again in 2023, with a new focus on German targets.
  • Many activists surveyed believe that France offers them good opportunities.
  • Most of the companies surveyed said they have moved to install defenses against activists, or plan to in the near future.
