Juan Monteverde’s efforts have produced significant results for his customers. After the Dodd-Frank Act was passed, he was a trailblazer in contesting proxies relating to pay issues. He fought corporations that did not offer proper disclosures to shareholders so that informed votes may be cast. Due to improper disclosure of information concerning expected CEO remuneration in a proxy statement, Juan Monteverde successfully enjoined a 2012 shareholder vote in that instance. The problem was a rise in executive stock plan shares that may have had a dilutive effect on investors.
