Review Investor Agreement

Are you investing in a business?

If you’ve received an investor agreement to review and sign, make sure it adequately protects your interests. Ask one of our lawyers to look over the agreement and highlight the benefits, risks and conditions associated with the investment (as set out in the agreement).

You can move forward with the investment with peace of mind that all parties understand the arrangement.

What you will get from this service

  • A 30-minute consultation with your lawyer to align objectives. Let your lawyer know what you need to understand about your document, and how it’s intended to operate. In particular, you’ll discuss:
    • The nature of the funding arrangements
    • The equity you expect to receive
    • Ways to exit the investment arrangements
    • Your specific questions about the agreement
  • An experienced legal professional will review your investor agreement
  • You receive an email which sets out the findings from the lawyer’s review. The advice will:
    • Answer your specific questions which you raised during the initial consultation.
    • Highlight the key points you need to be aware of.
    • Indicate clauses that you may want to re-negotiate or amend, with a short explanation of the reasons why. Where possible, your lawyer will include suggested changes to the wording of the clause in tracked changes.
    • Suggest potential omissions that you may want to consider inserting.

What this service will enable you to do

You’ll have (i) confidence that the document operates in the way you require and (ii) clarity on the potential risks contained in the agreement so that you can either renegotiate particular clauses or mitigate against those risks.

You’ll understand what your options are in the event of a dispute and you’ll have a clear idea of the appropriate course of action if the other party to the contract is in breach.
