BLB&G partner Greg Varallo and former partner Mark Lebovitch, two of the nation’s leading corporate governance experts, were featured panelists at Skytop Strategies' annual conference “Shareholder Activism 2019: Unlocking Shareholder Value.”
Mark and Greg were interviewed by Activist Insights Editor-in-Chief Josh Black for a session entitled “Delaware 2019: The Shifting Landscape of Investor Rights and Shareholder Activism,” which spoke to the trends in Delaware law facing activist investors and shareholders generally.
Mark led the firm's Corporate Governance litigation practice, focusing on derivative suits and transactional litigation. Widely recognized as one of the nation’s top securities litigators and governance experts, he has prosecuted numerous high-profile cases on behalf of institutional investors to preliminary injunctions and to trial, obtaining billions of dollars for investors and achieving unprecedented corporate governance improvements.
Greg Varallo heads BLB&G's Delaware office, focusing his practice on protecting investor rights, trying cases in Delaware and around the US. Greg's cases, while primarily derivative and class actions, also include plaintiffs’ side business-to-business disputes, fiduciary litigation in Bankruptcy Court, and, where appropriate, ADR. He has litigated hundreds of complex business disputes in state and federal courts throughout the United States, including Delaware, and has earned a reputation as one of the country’s leading corporate governance experts and trial lawyers.
