Shareholder agreements are a fantastic way of creating trust between people who are in business together. A robust agreement will cover all the likely scenarios and can leave all parties feeling confident that, from an ownership point of view, nothing can go wrong.
Agreements will be bespoke for the client outlining key issues that have been discussed whilst also including provisions for more general areas. We begin by assessing the business itself to gauge the likely problems that could arise in the future. From there we can suggest relevant clauses which protect the business owners and all other shareholders accordingly.
Our agreements will cover as standard:
- Share rights
- Majority shareholder rights
- Shareholder conduct
- Events such as sales and mergers
- The addition of further shareholders and any other clauses the client feels necessary
