History

Elliott Management Corporation tends to take an activist approach to investing, frequently amassing significant, but minority stakes in distressed or underperforming companies and attempting to foster change.[2]

In 2008, Elliott Management Corporation sued rival hedge fund Cedar Hill Capital Partners LLC, alleging that the rival company "misappropriated" proprietary software that cost Elliott Management Corp. millions of dollars and years to develop.[3]
