On September 29, Law360 quoted Chris Hewitt in "5 Tips For Boards Blindsided By An Activist Campaign." Chris noted that companies in this position should take a close look at the activist and evaluate its past campaign history, how established the activist is, and what demands the activist tends to make.

"Different activists whether it's Pershing Square or Carl Icahn or Trian Partners or Starboard all have a different flavor to how they approach the companies they invest in and try to engage with. So you have to understand what their background is," Chris said.
