Squire Patton Boggs Publishes Inaugural DC Area Public Company Local Trends Report for the 2023 Proxy Season

September 2023
Region: Americas

In this recently released report, our DC Corporate and Securities team reviewed the 2023 proxy statements filed with the SEC of the approximately 100 largest, by annual revenue, public companies in the DC area and assess high-level trends regarding the local public company market, as well as how the DC market aligns and contrasts with the trends and data of public companies nationally.

In this report, we analyze local public company metrics against the Fortune 500, S&P 500, Russell 3000, and other national surveys as available. This report provides helpful benchmarking data regarding how the DC-area public company market, while robust in number, differs at least in some respects from governance and disclosure perspectives compared to other markets, including from the national public company statistics.
