Shareholder Activism Panel

Since the turn of the century economic and legal trends have combined to give shareholders important new powers over certain kinds of corporate decisions. The most visible sign of the new corporate governance regime is the presence of activist shareholders who have met with significant success in Canada. But are shareholders well-suited to manage companies?  Do the interests of activist shareholders tend to align with those of the company or even other shareholder constituencies? The Faculty of Law is bringing the biggest experts on shareholder activism in Canada and the United States together to discuss these questions.

DATE: June 2, 2016
TIME: 6 - 9 p.m.
LOCATION: Calgary Petroleum Club
