Our Legal Thinking

Allectus offers you unrivalled experience in advising the most high-profile investors on a wide range of shareholder issues.

Angeli has acted as regular counsel for the most prominent activist hedge funds from their early days, helping them develop strategies and often leading investor campaigns that were ground-breaking in their markets.

Today, we continue to be at the forefront of changes in how investors and companies engage, and the tactics deployed on both sides, including advising on the legal issues around transformative products that enable pass-through voting and spearheading industry movement for inclusive investor behaviour.

The difference with Allectus

We ensure legal measures are deployed carefully and tactically at the right time to maximise impact and results.

Starting with a thorough evaluation of your goals, we analyse the target company including its constitutional documents, share structure and shareholders (for potential allies) and history relating to your matter of concern. We look at litigation claims that can be commenced alongside a shareholder action, to ensure maximum success.

A detailed action plan is then developed for you. We take the lead on its implementation by engaging on proposals and counter-proposals, drafting letters and presentations, requisitioning meetings, lobbying shareholder support such as through websites or roadshows and liaising with regulators.

Our goal is always to negotiate a result that achieves your goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Throughout the course of any campaign, we ensure you are advised on your legal obligations including under insider trading/market abuse, disclosure and takeover rules.

“Angeli’s ability to bring creative ideas and craft novel solutions to problems deemed unsolvable by other counsel is amongst those attributes that have made her consistent first preference.”
