When a person (or group) acquires more than 5% of a public company's stock, they must report this event by filing a Schedule 13D with the SEC. Often, this is a sign that an "activist investor" is seeking to become more involved in the company's management – perhaps the investor may even try to obtain a seat on the Board of Directors.
Using the Business Law Center's dedicated 13D tool, you can search for these filings by investor name, company name, form type, industry and more. It may also be prudent to set up an email Alert – if someone purchases a large block of stock in one of your clients, it's best to be the first to know.
