July – August Issue of the Deal Lawyers Newsletter

The July-August Issue of the Deal Lawyers print newsletter was just posted and sent to the printer. This month’s issue includes the following articles:

– Universal Proxy: What Companies Need to Know in ‘Year Zero’
– How Continuous Voting with UPC Will Change Proxy Contests
– The Deal Closed – Now What? Practical Considerations of Sponsors and Management Teams of Newly Acquired Private Equity Portfolio Companies

If you don’t subscribe to Deal Lawyers, please email us at or call us at 800-737-1271. We devote a lot of attention in the latest issue to the SEC’s universal proxy rules – which will apply to all shareholder meetings held after August 31st. The universal proxy rules fundamentally alter the landscape of proxy contests and shareholder activism, but universal proxy is just one snowball in the avalanche of rulemaking that may be forthcoming from the SEC in the next few months alone.

In this rapid-fire rulemaking environment, you can’t afford to miss our upcoming 2022 Proxy Disclosure & 19th Annual Executive Compensation Conferences and our 1st Annual Practical ESG Conference! Click here for more information on our all-star panelists and details on how to register!
