Shareholders’ agreements and joint venture agreements are vital for getting things straight from the start. At Tees our experts help you draw them up.
Shareholders’ agreements and joint venture agreements set out how the relationship between the shareholders will work, as well as how the company or joint venture will be run. You’ll need to get on with the other shareholders for the business to thrive and it's important to get it set up properly from the start.
Even if your fellow shareholders are family members or good friends, having a shareholders’ agreement can save you a lot of hassle later on. Drawing up a shareholders’ agreement at the start of your business venture is a really useful way of making sure that all the shareholders have similar views about what you’re going to do together, and crucially, how you’re going to do it. In fact, if you can’t agree at this stage, you’re likely to run into difficulties further down the line, so all the more reason to have the discussion early on.
