We see a lot of situations where costly problems arise due to the lack of a Shareholders’ Agreement, which is why we advocate that every company should have one.

Shareholders Agreements are a great way of clearly stating what the shareholders of a company can expect with the purpose of making sure that it is clear to both the business and the shareholder what both parties get out of the relationship in as much detail as is appropriate.

We advise that all businesses with existing shareholders or who are considering investment from a new shareholder make a Shareholders Agreement a priority to protect both parties in the transaction.

Working with an experienced Corporate Law Firm ensures you’ll get the right legal advice and support from the onset.
