S&C Partner Frank Aquila Serves as Editor of Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewOctober 9, 2019
S&C corporate partner Frank Aquila served as editor of the recently published fourth edition of Shareholder Rights and Activism Review, a Law Business Research publication. The volume, which is designed to serve as a primer on the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism around the globe, consists of 15 chapters covering developments in 15 different jurisdictions around the world. In his preface, Frank notes that shareholder activism has become “a prominent, and likely permanent, feature of the corporate landscape.” It is “a global phenomenon that is effecting change to the corporate landscape and grabbing headlines not only in North America but also in Europe, Australia and Asia.” These trends make it “increasingly important for legal and corporate practitioners to understand the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism in the various international jurisdictions facing activism,” Frank writes.
In addition to serving as editor of the volume, Frank also authored the United States chapter. Frank has served as editor of every edition of Shareholder Rights and Activism Review. S&C associate Lauren Boehmke also provided assistance both on the United States chapter and in editing the volume, as she has in each edition since the first.
