Message from the Executive Chairman and Founder

From modest beginnings in 2003, Kingsdale has strategically grown to become the leading advisor to public company boards and management on all shareholder, governance, and transaction related matters.

Kingsdale continues to be the most active shareholder advisory firm, having acted as an advisor, information agent, and proxy solicitor on the largest and highest profile transactions.

We leverage the strengths of our multi-disciplinary team to design breakthrough strategies for the most complex challenges, providing superior execution, and hands-on shareholder interaction.

Our seasoned industry professionals bring the same passion and care to every engagement — whether shepherding a multi-billion-dollar hostile takeover, acting for management or a dissident on a proxy contest, ensuring smooth passage of your stock option plan, or developing an aggressive shareholder outreach strategy.

Recognizing that our clients operate in a global economy, our team is available to meet clients’ needs 24/7, 365 days of the year.

Thank you for your interest and continued support.
