Shareholders Agreement Solicitors

Morecrofts have been helping businesses for more than 200 years, with a forward-thinking reputation for outstanding service.

We have a dedicated business team who will assist you with your needs in a timely, confidential and professional way.

If your company has more than one Shareholder you should consider entering into a Shareholders’ Agreement.  A Shareholders’ Agreement can provide clarity as to what will happen in certain circumstances and can help avoid drawn out and expensive disputes in the future.

Shareholders Agreements can cover a wide range of issues such as:

  • Decision making
  • Appointment of Directors
  • Dividend policy
  • Share dealing
  • What happens on the death or insolvency of a shareholder
  • Aims of the company
  • Funding
  • Dispute resolution

Shareholders are free to negotiate terms as they see fit and by recording the agreed terms in a Shareholders’ Agreement the parties establish the ground rules by which they can assert their rights as shareholders. Ultimately, this can prevent disputes from disrupting the governance of the company.
