Clients Roy E. Disney and Stanley P. Gold noted for their campaign against CEO Michael D. Eisner of the Walt Disney Company, The Wall Street Journal, "Disney's Eisner Steps Down from Chairman Post After Protest Garners 43% of Voted Shares"

The March 4th Wall Street Journal, in its article entitled "Disney's Eisner Steps Down from Chairman Post After Protest Garners 43% of Voted Shares," noted that "[t]he Disney meeting caps the first chapter of what is likely to be a long-running crisis over the company's future. The drama began late last year, when Roy E. Disney, nephew of the company's founder, and his long-time business partner, Stanley Gold, quit the company's board after learning that Mr. Disney was going to be forced off it by a mandatory retirement policy. They went on to wage a bitter campaign urging shareholders to oppose Mr. Eisner and three other directors as Mr. Eisner's long list of critics, including several big pension funds, used the moment to launch their own broadsides against him."
