Shareholders’ Agreements With Tinsdills
A shareholders’ agreement is a contract between the shareholders of a company setting out agreed matters between them, such as:
- how shares can be transferred;
- rights of first refusal;
- decisions on which all shareholders must agree;
- how dividends are payable;
- non-compete restrictions and exit plans.
Shareholders’ agreements can provide protection to minority shareholders, achieve control for majority shareholders and provide a default position to fall back on in certain situations. By entering into a shareholders’ agreement which regulates the dealings of shareholders, those shareholders inevitably reduce the risk of future dispute between them or, at least, provide a structured way to deal with any such dispute.
In addition to preparing a bespoke shareholders’ agreement, it is important to ensure that your company’s articles of association are consistent with that shareholders’ agreement to avoid uncertainty or conflict in the future and to ensure the agreement between the shareholders on matters such as transmission, share transfers and director decision-making are consistent.
At Tinsdills Solicitors, we have a team of specialist business law solicitors who can negotiate and prepare a shareholders’ agreement that is tailored to the needs of the shareholders.
