A shareholder agreement is often used to supplement the constitutional documents of a company (i.e. the articles of association), and regulates the relationship between shareholders. Exactly what will be contained in a shareholder agreement depends on the circumstances. Broadly, however, they seek to protect the rights of shareholders and anticipate the future needs of the company by setting out how certain matters will be dealt with. Common matters covered in shareholder agreements, therefore, include ownership and voting rights of shares, the rights of minority shareholders, the transfer or valuation of shares, dividend policy, the control and management of the company, company financing and how disputes will be resolved.
Our Company Law team has vast experience assisting clients to negotiate, draft, review, interpret and amend shareholder agreements. Our aim is to help our business clients protect their interests by putting in place a shareholder agreement that will provide an effective contractual remedy should issues arise.
