Deckers’ Proxy Contest Against Marcato Capital Management


WSGR successfully represented Deckers in the matter

The company’s victory comes after a 10-month long proxy contest with San Francisco-based investment manager Marcato Capital Management, which manages funds that beneficially own approximately 8.4 percent of the outstanding common shares of Deckers Brands. In the challenge, Marcato attempted to replace several Deckers directors with its own candidates. WSGR represented Deckers Brands in its proxy contest with Marcato.
