2018 Leet Symposium: Fiduciary Duty, Corporate Goals, and Shareholder Activism

Friday, November 2, 2018
8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

The Symposium will discuss corporate officers’ and directors’ fiduciary duties by exploring the tension between traditional shareholder wealth maximization and shareholder environmental and social activism. The Symposium will present issues related to corporate governance, hedge fund activism, and the ethical role of general counsels seeking to zealously advocate for their corporations while giving impartial legal advice. The current political, social, and financial climate presents an exciting opportunity to discuss how corporations respond to shifting social awareness.
