A shareholders’ agreement is an agreement made amongst the shareholders or members of a company, which clearly outlines the rights and obligations of shareholders.
Having a shareholders’ agreement in place can help avoid issues down the track, including costly court litigation.
At Clifford Gouldson, our commercial lawyers are experienced in creating shareholders’ agreements that consider things including:
- The number of shareholders
- Funding arrangements
- The nature of the business or industry your company operates in.
We also regularly advise on:
- Terms of trade or client services agreements
- Partnership agreements
- Buy/sell agreements
- Terms and conditions.
