Professor Larry Hamermesh, the Ruby R. Vale Professor of Corporate and Business Law and Director of the Widener Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law, at Widener University Law School, describes in a blog post here his suggestion, presented at a recent PLI Directors’ Institute on Corporate Governance, that investors and managers share a common interest in rethinking annual meetings (even doing away with them altogether as a routine matter), and finding ways in which stockholder input into corporate governance can be more selectively targeted.
