Blueshirt experts help management teams stay abreast of emerging corporate governance topics in order to understand any potential impact on the company and its shareholders. Our team has dealt with most situations, and when needed, we will leverage the full resources of the firm, including Blueshirt corporate governance specialists, on our clients’ behalf.

Investor-centric ESG Advisory

Measuring the sustainability, social impact and DEI of a company has become increasingly important to investors. Plus, a growing number of specific indexes and funds are being established to invest in disruptive companies with more environmentally or socially conscious business models, such as clean energy, reclaimed fashion or electric automobiles. 

Integrating ESG into investor messaging is becoming a critical element to attract and maintain investor interest. We can proactively help clients develop and communicate their ESG narratives, authentically, and have extensive expertise in supporting comprehensive ESG initiatives.

Shareholder Activism Defense

All companies, regardless of size, are susceptible to activist attacks. At Blueshirt, we have extensive experience anticipating and dealing with activist shareholders. We can help you proactively manage activist risk by:

  • Identifying and monitoring key vulnerabilities
  • Developing an activist defense playbook and response plan
  • Providing strategic counsel on corporate governance issues in advance of proxy season

If a company is targeted, we work closely with management to mobilize an effective campaign. Email us at for activism defense case studies.

Shareholder and Proxy Advisory Firm Engagement

When the need arises, Blueshirt works closely with clients on formulating engagement strategies for active and passive investors, as well as for leading proxy advisory firms such as Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis.

Board Diversity

Blueshirt refers Board members to management teams from its extensive network and helps companies think through diversification strategies as they relate to Wall Street. Clients also benefit from Blueshirt team members’ relationships with Board-readiness organizations that help connect cadres of talented women [and minorities] to prospective companies.
