Shareholders Agreements


As a company stakeholder, a shareholders agreement is one of the most important protections you can put in place.

Your shareholders agreement is the cornerstone of a successful relationship with your fellow shareholders.   

It sets out your rights and obligations as a shareholder, and explains how the company will be run. It is a separate document to your company's constitution.

To ensure it is relevant and appropriate, it should be prepared specifically for you and your company, taking into account the circumstances of each of the shareholders and the nature of the relationships between them.
