The Heyman Center on Corporate Governance is honored to have Joseph Flom, a Partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Harvey Goldschmid, Dwight Professor of Law at Columbia Law School in a discussion of Samuel Heyman's 1983 proxy fight for control of the GAF Corporation.

The GAF takeover is a story of shareholder activism, famous not only in modern corporate law circles, but also as front page business news in the 1980s. Samuel J. Heyman's 1983 proxy fight against the incumbent board of directors grabbed regular headlines in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Week and the American Lawyer.

The panelists will highlight the monumental impact that GAF takeover has had on Anglo-American corporate governance. Prof. Eric Pan, Director of The Heyman Center, will moderate.

This event is open only to the Cardozo community.
