We understand the importance of establishing clear and robust agreements among business shareholders to ensure a harmonious and successful partnership. Our team of experienced business lawyers are dedicated to providing tailored solutions that protect your interests and foster strong shareholder relationships.

At Biz Lawyers and Advisory, we recognise that shareholder agreements play a pivotal role in defining the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of shareholders within a company. Our goal is to assist you in crafting well-structured and legally sound agreements that address key aspects of your business and safeguard the interests of all stakeholders involved.

Services we provide:

  • Drafting Customised Shareholder Agreements: Our knowledgeable team will work closely with you to understand your specific business dynamics and objectives. We will draft tailored shareholder agreements that precisely reflect your unique requirements, ensuring clarity and certainty for all parties involved.
  • Shareholder Rights and Obligations: We will help delineate the rights and obligations of each shareholder, including voting rights, decision-making processes, share transfers, dividend distribution, and dispute resolution mechanisms. By clearly defining these aspects, we aim to prevent potential conflicts and facilitate smoother business operations.
  • Capital Contributions and Financing: Our expertise extends to advising on capital contributions, fundraising efforts, and financing arrangements within the shareholder agreement. We will ensure that the agreement reflects the agreed-upon capital structure and financing provisions, addressing important considerations such as dilution of ownership, capital calls, and rights of investors.
  • Exit Strategies and Buyout Provisions: We will assist in outlining exit strategies and buyout provisions within the shareholder agreement. Whether it's a planned exit, retirement, or unforeseen circumstances, our team will help establish fair and reasonable mechanisms for the transfer of shares and buyout processes.
  • Non-Compete and Confidentiality Clauses: To protect the interests of your business, we will incorporate non-compete and confidentiality clauses into the shareholder agreement. These provisions safeguard sensitive information, prevent competitive activities by shareholders, and maintain the confidentiality of proprietary knowledge.
  • Dispute Resolution Mechanisms: Our experienced lawyers will advise on and incorporate appropriate dispute resolution mechanisms, such as mediation or arbitration, into the shareholder agreement. These provisions can help mitigate conflicts and facilitate amicable resolutions, avoiding costly and time-consuming litigation.

By choosing Biz Lawyers and Advisory, you can rely on our expertise and commitment to providing comprehensive shareholder agreement services. Our team will guide you through the entire process, ensuring that your shareholder agreement aligns with your business objectives and promotes a stable and productive shareholder relationship.
