Why Legal Help is Important

The details of a shareholder agreement are extremely important to all parties involved. Such agreements are legally binding arrangements that govern the relationships between shareholders. It is therefore highly recommended not only that shareholders put such an agreement in place, but that they do so with the help of an expert legal team to advise on best practice.

Shareholder agreements can serve many purposes, including:

  • Ensuring the responsibilities and authority of the directors are clear
  • Laying out the rules for different classes of shares
  • Ensuring the management of the company is properly set out
  • Describing how shares can be issued and transferred
  • Ensuring transparency between shareholders
  • Detailing what should happen if a shareholder wishes to exit
  • Clarifying the rules (what is and is not permitted)

Importantly, a shareholder agreement can play a key role in making sure any potential conflict between shareholders is avoided.  This, in turn, helps to ensure the smooth running of a business and gives it the best opportunity to thrive. Seeking expert legal help is invaluable because it ensures the agreement is as fair and effective as possible.
