Shareholder Agreements

Whether you are starting a new business with friends or arranging new investment in your business it is advisable to properly document the shareholding relationship.

The Shareholder Agreements Sub-folder provides a range of templates, guidance notes, and other supporting documents and clauses. Each agreement is drafted to fit a different set of circumstances, such as issuance of new shares (or not), a bias towards minority or majority interests, and/or the requirement for a simple version or more complex version.

"A good Shareholder Agreement is like a fence at the top of a cliff, which stops company owners from falling over the edge and into the hands of lawyers who wait in the ambulance parked beside the rocks below.
 
This book explains in easy to understand language what a Shareholder Agreement does, the common clauses it contains and when it is best to put one in place."
