Shareholders' Agreements

If you’re forming a new company with more than one shareholder you should enter into a shareholders’ agreement to avoid uncertainty and disharmony further down the line.

A shareholders’ agreement provides certainty for your company by setting out in plain English what the future direction will be and how a number of key issues will be dealt with, such as voting rights.

Amongst other things, a shareholders’ agreement can help protect minority shareholders from the majority taking advantage of their power and will help with estate planning giving clarity to what happens to shares on death.
