Shareholder Agreements

Shareholder Agreements

Shareholder agreements are private agreements between shareholders on how they will regulate the relationship between themselves.

A shareholders’ agreement often addresses the following:

  • How liabilities will be apportioned
  • Restrictions on, or mechanisms for, creating, issuing or transferring shareholdings.
  • Provisions for the exit of a shareholder.
  • Options to acquire other shareholder’s shares.

They provide certainty for shareholders on matters that are not covered in the Model Articles of Association.

They can be tailored to your specific needs, and unlike Articles of Association, they can be used to keep terms confidential.
