Peter Roth to Speak on Shareholder Activism

Associate Peter Roth will be co-lecturing at the 6th Annual Advanced Securities Compliance seminar, scheduled for October 17& 18, 2011, in Vancouver. Peter will be presenting his article, co-authored with partner Trevor Scott and published in the 2011 Canadian Legal Lexpert® Directory, entitled Shareholder Activism: Motivations, Tools and Current Issues.

Shareholder activism has risen dramatically in Canada, with shareholders achieving increasing success in advancing their agendas on public companies. Peter’s presentation will review the different motivations for shareholder activists, the tools used by shareholder activists, the regulatory environment and current “hot button” issues: Majority Voting, Slate Elections and Say on Pay.  The discussion will also cover preparation and strategies for voting campaigns, shareholder proposals, and proxy battles.
