Vinson & Elkins’ Shareholder Activism team has received No. 1 rankings for company representation as part of Refinitiv’s First Half 2019 Shareholder Activism Scorecard and The Deal’s Q3 2019 Shareholder Activism League Tables.

In an article accompanying its Q3 2019 League Tables, The Deal writes that “[a] handful of law firms advise both corporations targeted by activist hedge funds and the insurgent investors that specialize in M&A campaigns” and noted that “V&E maintain[ed] its top ranking for number of activist-targeted corporations advised…” in 2018 and 2019. Refinitiv also ranked V&E No. 1 for company representation for the full year ending June 30, 2019.

V&E’s Shareholder Activism team is led by Lawrence Elbaum and Patrick Gadson in New York and Jeff Floyd and Steve Gill in Houston. Comprising approximately 30 attorneys, the Shareholder Activism team leverages the experience of the firm’s top-tier public company, M&A, corporate governance and litigation practices, representing companies facing the growing tide of shareholder activism. The team has been involved in approximately 125 activist situations across all industries, including dozens of proxy contests over the past five years.
