Overview

Contested solicitations can take various forms and involve a range of issues. Here, the stakes are particularly high, as the outcomes can redefine control of the company, its strategic direction and shareholder value. A proxy solicitation may be contested for any number of reasons, such as board election challenges, or opposition to mergers and other strategic initiatives.
