Jonathan Oestreich recently joined G&E as a Director to build upon the Firm’s well-established efforts advocating for institutional investors in shareholder matters. Prior to joining G&E, Mr. Oestreich was a managing director at Spotlight Advisors in New York, an advisory firm focused on shareholder activism and proxy contests. Previously, he was a senior M&A banker and led the contested situations practice at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.
Mr. Oestreich’s arrival aligns with G&E’s historic platform and success representing shareholders and other investors in securities and corporate governance litigation. The Firm’s new push for shareholder engagement comes as public pension funds and other institutional investors increasingly align with activist shareholders to insure the value of retirement portfolios, enhance returns, and advocate for improved governance. As a result, activists and public company boards are applying a more rigorous approach to capital allocation, operations benchmarking, and corporate governance. G&E’s activist practice will advocate for these improvements.
