Lawrence Elbaum and Patrick Gadson, Co-Heads of Shareholder Activism at Vinson & Elkins

By CorpGov Editorial Staff

FactSet has named Vinson & Elkins’ Shareholder Activism practice as No. 1 in public company defense, the fifth year running that V&E has been given the accolade.

Recently, V&E was also awarded the No. 1 ranking for the fifth year in a row for company and board representation based on number of campaigns defended for 2020 by Activist Insight. Additionally, V&E was ranked among the top firms in the nation for Shareholder Activism – Advice to Boards in the Legal 500 U.S. 2020 guide.

The guide also recognized Lawrence Elbaum and Patrick Gadson, co-heads of the firm’s Shareholder Activism practice, based in New York – Elbaum as one of only two “Next Generation Partners” in the category and Gadson as a recommended practitioner. Mr. Elbaum has been lauded for “unsurpassed experience in, and knowledge of, this space,” and Gadson as “just the best” and a “go-to legal advisor” for activism defense situations.

Comprising approximately 30 attorneys, V&E’s Shareholder Activism practice leverages the firm’s top-tier public company, M&A, corporate governance and litigation practices, to defend public companies and their board in proxy fights and other high-stakes matters for corporate control.
