The April issue of Practical Law The Journal included Mr. Aquila’s column titled, “Negotiating a Settlement with an Activist Investor.” The column, which takes the form of a memorandum to a board of directors, outlines the issues that a board of directors should consider when negotiating a settlement with an activist investor seeking to designate individuals to serve as directors. Mr. Aquila highlights the possible outcomes of reaching a settlement with the activist investor and advises boards on what to expect. Ms. Boehmke provided invaluable assistance in the preparation of this column. Mr. Aquila's regular column in Practical Law The Journal focuses on shareholder activism, corporate governance matters and other issues of importance to corporate directors and the lawyers who ‎advise them.
