In our experience, focusing on the structure and language of key sections of the proxy statement that voting decision makers will scrutinize can have a positive impact on investor perception and their willingness to support the Board and its voting recommendations. 

This is particularly necessary for 2023 proxies as they will be the first to come out in the era of Universal Proxy, which will effectively reduce the cost of running a dissident campaign for Board seats. Against this backdrop, directors will be at much greater risk, particularly at name-brand companies.
