Deal Lawyers Download Podcast: Preparing for the First Universal Proxy Season

Our latest Deal Lawyers Download podcast features my interview with Georgeson Managing Director Ed Greene about how companies are preparing for the first proxy season under the universal proxy (UPC) rules. Topics addressed in this 10-minute podcast include:

– How implementation of UPC may influence activism and the upcoming proxy season

– Companies’ preparations for the new regime and additional actions they should be taking

– Activists’ responses to UPC and what we might expect as proxy season draws closer

– The influence that UPC might have had on recent years’ proxy contests

If you have something you’d like to talk about, please feel free to reach out to me via email at I’m wide open when it comes to topics – an interesting new judicial decision, other legal or market developments, best practices, war stories, tips on handling deal issues, interesting side gigs, or anything else you think might be of interest to the members of our community are all fair game.
