When we set up or invest in companies, the relationship between shareholders is often great or at the very least amicable. But as a business grows and there are new challenges to face, unfortunately these relationships can turn sour.
A shareholders agreement can help set up the framework for how the relationship between shareholders will work and it can also be used to settle disputes.
A shareholders agreement can also provide you with clear and unambiguous rights and how you can enforce those rights.
Often they are overlooked, as individuals believe the articles of association will do this for them. However, unless your articles are bespoke, it is unlikely they cover every eventuality and the uniqueness of your relationship. There are also some things that cannot be included in the articles of association, but could be included in a shareholders agreement.
Our experts can help draft a shareholders agreement for you that reflects all the shareholders’ intentions and helps protect the company in the future.
We know exactly what you are thinking.
- That is going to be costly
- Solicitors don’t understand our business
- It is too complicated
- I do not have time for complex lengthy paperwork
