Shareholders Agreement Advice

A shareholders agreement is a private document which sets out how the company should be run and sets out rules and procedures relating to the holding and transferring of shares. It is needed where a company has more than one shareholder. A shareholder’s agreement governs the relationship between the shareholders and addresses operational matters which are not otherwise governed by law.

The shareholders agreement can provide for what should happen in the event of a dispute, deal with pre-emption rights should one shareholder decide that they wish to sell. It is designed to get you out of trouble and can save vast amounts of money, time and stress should disputes arise between the shareholders in the future. The shareholders agreement will provide a mechanism, that you will not find in standard forms of Articles of Association, to resolve issues regarding disputes and the transfer of shares.

It is essential protection for the value of your business and your shares in the company.

We have dealt with numerous shareholders agreements and also shareholders disputes. Having experience of both enables us to give you the best advice.
