Activist shareholders acquire significant stakes in publicly traded companies for many reasons: making short-term profits, increasing companies’ profitability over the long-term, and changing companies’ policies in order to comport with the shareholders’ social and environmental goals. Not surprising, given these disparate motivations, activist investors are perceived by various stakeholders as threats to be avoided, part of the current landscape and powerful forces motivating social responsibility. The symposium will allow regulators, attorneys, academics, and business leaders to share their unique views on this important aspect of modern business and law.
