Shareholders’ Agreement

When you’re starting a business with other people, it’s best practice to put a shareholders’ agreement in place.

Your shareholders’ agreement is the key document that formalises and regulates the relationship between the individual shareholders in your company. It will clarify important issues such as:

  • The current and future direction of your business
  • Voting rights for each shareholder
  • Payment of dividends
  • How to conduct shareholder meetings
  • What happens when you want to sell your shares
  • How you’ll deal with disputes between the shareholders

Every shareholders’ agreement is tailored to the specific requirements of the business.

Our lawyers listen to your requirements and draft a shareholders’ agreement that is customised to your business. With expertise in a range of different industries, you can find a lawyer who understands your sector. They can advise you on the ways in which other businesses have dealt with specific issues that impact the drafting of your shareholders’ agreement.

This service is for drafting a shareholders’ agreement with up to 5 individual shareholders.

If your business has more than 5 shareholders, or one or more of your shareholders is a corporate entity, please choose a lawyer and liaise with them about your requirements. They will provide you with a quote for an additional fee.

  • Expected deliverables or time commitment
