January 5, 2021 - Kleinberg Kaplan, a pure-play activist law firm, was again featured as a top legal advisor for activist campaigns in Bloomberg’s 2020 Global Activism Market Review. The firm ranked fourth for legal counsel advising activist investors in the United States and fifth globally for the same, according to Bloomberg. The Bloomberg Activism Advisory League Tables represent the top financial, legal, investor relations and proxy solicitor advisors in the global shareholder activism market.
This is the latest recognition of the firm’s position as one of the “go to” law firms in activism campaigns. Christopher P. Davis, chair of Kleinberg Kaplan’s Investor Activism Practice, was ranked as a leading activist lawyer in Chambers USA, which called Davis a “tireless advocate of his client’s point of view.” Chambers further noted that clients described Davis as “extremely knowledgeable and experienced” and shared that “his strategic sense and skills really stand out.”
Bolstered by its reputation in the funds industry, the firm’s clients include many activist hedge funds and other investors. Kleinberg Kaplan develops and helps execute innovative strategies to help investors achieve strategic goals, from the initial analysis of available options through the successful conclusion of activist campaigns. The firm has been involved in numerous successful proxy contests during the last three decades for its many activist clients. Practice leader Chris Davis frequently appears on television, at conferences and in print as an advocate for shareholder activism.
