Founded by industry veterans, Harkins Kovler is an independent proxy solicitation firm specializing in shareholder activism, M&A transactions and proxy contests for board representation and control.

Our experience includes many of the most complex and contentious M&A transactions and proxy contests occurring in the U.S. and Europe over the past thirty years.

We achieve superior results for clients by combining the time-tested methodologies of established proxy solicitation providers with the creative vision, data-driven rigor, client-specific strategies and personalized guidance of a boutique.

Our principals are involved directly in every aspect of the services we provide.  We also work innovatively and constructively with our clients’ legal, investment banking and financial media relations advisors to secure desired outcomes.

The firm’s new client relationships are derived largely from referrals, and we appreciate the recognition extended by those who know us best.
