Assuming all your shareholders are happy with the terms, drafting your Shareholders’ Agreement is simple. We’ll meet with you to discuss your requirements before drafting the initial document. Then, once you’ve made any minor adjustments, the agreement can be signed by your shareholders.
We recommend putting your Shareholders’ Agreement in place as early as possible once you’ve formed your company and allocated (or reallocated) its shares. That way, you’ll have a simple, effective mechanism in place should a dispute arise – and it’ll save you getting involved in time-consuming and costly mediation or litigation later on.
Our commercial team are experts in reviewing, drafting and negotiating Shareholders’ Agreements for businesses of all sizes across the UK.
We have the understanding, experience and skills needed to ensure your business and its shareholders are fully protected in the event of a dispute. We’re always available and, unlike many other law firms, move quickly so you can operate with clarity, speed and peace of mind.
