Register for February 9, 2017 breakfast program: Living with Activist Nominees on Your Board

In an age of robust shareholder activism, many directors find themselves sitting in the boardroom alongside activist-nominated directors. How does the board ensure that it functions effectively following a proxy fight or a negotiated settlement which has resulted in “legacy” and activist–nominated directors? How does the board put aside any acrimony or differences and work together in the best interests of all shareholders? Our esteemed panel will address this provocative topic:

  • From the perspective of a legacy director whose board has added activist nominees.
  • From the perspective of an activist nominee who has worked alongside legacy directors.

Exploring the dynamics they’ve faced and providing practical advice in addressing these challenges.
