The usual suspects were at it again in the 2016 proxy season.
Companies have requested SEC no-action letter relief for 231 proposals so far this year from 309 proponents, according to Bloomberg Law data. This means, of course, that some of the proposals were submitted by more than one proponent.

On the other side, General Electric Co. led the pack among companies, with eight no-action letter requests.
Below is a breakdown of the companies and types of proposals for which they sought relief:
Gibson Dunn handled all of the proposals on behalf of GE and Chevron, while Exxon Mobil used Gibson Dunn for one proposal and Davis Polk for three. Otherwise, the companies’ in-house legal departments fielded the rest of the requests.
