Why Legal Help is Important
Articles of association are important in laying out the agreed rules of operating a business and helping to prevent any disputes between shareholders and directors from arising. Without these rules, there is greater risk of disagreements over major decisions, such as the issue of new shares, the appointments of directors and shareholders’ decisions.
While there are default articles set down by law, it is often recommended that they are amended in order to better reflect the shareholders’ specific requirements. All companies must have articles of association because they act as a contract between the company and its shareholders.
At Blackstone, we can provide assistance in relation to all aspects of articles of association, including help with drafting them. We can:
- Advise on the options available when drafting the articles
- Deal with situations giving rise to permitted transfer of shares
- Deal with situations giving rise to compulsory transfer of shares
- Deal with pre-emption rights upon a proposed transfer of shares
Articles of association can be complex and often deal with many different matters, from restrictions on the transfer of shares to the minimum or maximum number of directors. Contact our team today for more information about how we can help you with any matter concerning articles of association.
