Shareholder agreements

Shareholder agreements

Not all businesses are the same; the dynamics between shareholders can vary dramatically both in terms of investment and day-to-day involvement in the business. Even where shareholders and directors of the company are one and the same, thought needs to be given as to how the business should be run, decisions made, ownership held and exits organised.

We always advise that spending a little bit of time at the outset can save a lot of time, cost and disruption in the long run.
