Every day, boards of directors make decisions that are subject to intense external scrutiny. In pursuing the best interests of shareholders, boards must deliberate on complex corporate transactions, often in sub-optimal circumstances.

We are experts in advising and opining on transactions.

  • Shareholder Activism
