Over the years since the financial crisis, shareholder activism has been on the rise around the world. As both shareholder activists, and the companies they target, become more geographically diverse, it is increasingly important for legal and corporate practitioners to understand the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism in the various international jurisdictions facing activism. The Shareholder Rights and Activism Review is designed as a primer on these aspects of shareholder activism in such jurisdictions.

Frank Aquila is a partner in Sullivan & Cromwell’s general practice group and a member of the firm’s management committee. Mr Aquila has a broad multidisciplinary practice that includes extensive experience in negotiated and unsolicited mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance. He has been engaged in many high-profile matters that include activism and takeover defence, proxy contests, complex cross-border transactions, global joint ventures, leveraged buyouts and private equity transactions. He regularly counsels boards of directors and board committees on corporate governance matters, crisis management and matters affecting corporate policy and strategy.

Mr Aquila is consistently recognised as one of the world’s leading mergers and acquisitions lawyers, including as one of a small number of lawyers ranked by Chambers Global in Band 1 (the top tier), as an American Lawyer ‘Dealmaker of the Year’ and as a recipient of the Atlas Award as ‘Global M&A Lawyer of the Year’ and as a three-time Law360 MVP. Mr Aquila is widely acknowledged as an innovator and thought leader in the profession. In 2015 the Financial Times recognised his representation of Kraft in its merger with Heinz to form The Kraft Heinz Company as one of the most innovative in North America. For his work in corporate governance, Mr Aquila has been regularly named by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) to its ‘Directorship 100’ – one of the 100 most influential people in corporate governance and inside the boardroom.
