A shareholders' agreement is often used to set out the terms governing issues in a limited company.  It is a contract between all or some of the shareholders, so can deal with all aspects of the relationship between them.

These can include:

  • the transfer of shares
  • selling shares
  • directorships
  • what happens on the death of a shareholder
  • restrictive covenants on the shareholders
  • confidentiality
  • dealing with deadlock situations

The shareholders' agreement is usually drafted by a company law solicitor who takes instructions from the company’s shareholders.  At Hollingsworths, we can help draft your shareholders' agreement and advise the shareholders on their options under company law. This will include reviewing the articles of association and the memorandum of the company.
