Cleary Gottlieb Tops Legal 500’s First-Ever Shareholder Activism Ranking

May 29, 2019

In the 2019 edition of The Legal 500 U.S., published on May 29, Cleary Gottlieb’s Corporate Governance practice placed in the top tier of the guide’s first-ever ranking for advising boards in defense of shareholder activism.

In its inaugural review of U.S. firms’ work in this category, the directory noted that Cleary “handles a range of work for well-known corporates against leading activist managers.”

This high distinction comes as part of the firm’s impressive results overall in the 2019 edition of The Legal 500 U.S., where Cleary earned 42 practice rankings, 22 of which were top-tier. The firm also received 32 “Leading Lawyer” rankings, and 23 Cleary lawyers were included in The Legal 500 U.S. list of “Next Generation Lawyers.”
