Defining your responsibilities and protecting your rights
with a shareholder’ agreement.

COMMERCIAL LAW

A shareholders’ agreement is invaluable in establishing how your company is run, and the rights and responsibilities of all shareholders.

If there is not a written shareholder agreement in place, then the relationship between the company and the shareholders is regulated by the company’s constitutional documents.

However, a written agreement negotiated between all shareholders is the best way to ensure that everyone is covered adequately and knows their rights and obligations.

Because of the complexities of drafting a comprehensive shareholder agreement, appropriate advice from our experienced commercial lawyers is a must.

Unfortunately, disputes can occasionally arise between shareholders. Whilst you cannot prepare for every eventuality, through our years of experience advising shareholders, we are familiar with the situations that could arise, and we can address these in the shareholders agreements in order to pre-empt the circumstances, prevent a dispute, and save you time and money in the long term.

A shareholder’s agreement is a valuable investment for your business now, as well as a worthwhile insurance for the future.
