Shareholders’ Agreements Shareholders’ Agreement drafting from our solicitors in Milton Keynes

Shareholders in a company need to agree on their respective stakes, rights and obligations to each other, and how the business will be managed. This is the purpose of the shareholders’ agreement and if well-drafted at the outset it will assist in operations running smoothly as all rights and responsibilities have been agreed upon.

At Heald Solicitors we’ll make sure you have a robust shareholders agreement covering key matters including the rights and duties of shareholders when they wish to exit the company, restraint of trade provisions, and what happens in the event of a dispute between the owners.

Drafting a Shareholders Agreement

Despite being such a key document, there is no legal requirement for shareholders to enter into an agreement with each other when they set up a company. Shareholder agreements are incredibly flexible and can cover a range of issues. Our Corporate and Commercial solicitors are well practised in getting to know clients and their businesses so they will understand which matters need to be covered. You can be sure we will advise you clearly and pragmatically on the terms you should be including in your agreement.

Shareholder Protection

When you’re starting out on a new collaborative venture, you’re likely to have a positive and trusting relationship with your fellow shareholders. A well-drafted shareholders’ agreement will help keep things that way, with everyone knowing where they stand. But if there is a dispute further down the line a shareholders’ agreement will provide a way to resolve that dispute.
