ACGC 2024 Master Class

“Advising A Board About Shareholder Activism: How to Avoid it and How to Manage it When it Happens”

The College offered it's annual in-person Master Class on April 11, 2024 at the Sidley Austin’s New York offices.

One of the benefits of membership in the College is the ability to nominate a more junior colleague in your organization or a client to attend. This event is intended for lawyers practicing in the governance arena who have potential to become future leaders in the field, and is designed to recognize their development in the field, provide exposure to the experience and insights of experienced Fellows on cutting edge issues in counselling boards of directors, and help foster relationships between practitioners in the governance area.

This year's event was led by our 2024 Master Class Co-Chairs, Kai H. E. Liekefett, who heads the activism practice at Sidley & Austin, and the College's Founding President, Frank M. Placenti, who leads the U.S. Governance Practice at Greenberg Traurig.

This year's program was an interactive discussion designed to help governance lawyers on the following: 

  • Learn how to advise boards on the challenging circumstances presented by shareholder activism
  • The preparatory steps that companies can take to forestall activism
