Shareholder Activism

Callout_ShortSellerWhen short sellers attack a company, information becomes currency. Companies under attack need to decide whether they prefer an aggressive counter-attack or whether they’re willing to let longer-term results prove their case. We have advised both Fortune 500 and smaller-cap companies on how to deal with short-sellers and stockholder activists. Because we know how to tell stories and how to assemble, package and present information, we provide tangible benefits for companies under attack.


In one extraordinary instance, we helped a corporate client expose a notorious short-seller who now resides in federal prison. We presently provide communications counsel to one of the nation’s largest private equity/venture capital firms. By extension, we provide guidance to a number of startups and mid-cap firms that don’t currently have internal communications staff.
