offices in New York, Connecticut, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and

of corporate communications consultant, investment banker, and Wall
Street Journal ranked sell-side analyst, and these varied perspectives
have introduced a unique dimension to his counsel which is currently
focused on shareholder activism, short seller defense, IPOs and
secondary offerings, crises communications, and M&A communications.
ICR has approximately 150 team members and currently works with more
than 400 private and public companies across 25 industry sectors.
