Shareholders’ agreements set out the rights of one shareholder against another, protecting the investment and interests of both majority and minority owners in the company.

They are useful because a firm’s Memorandum and Articles of Association often favour those shareholders with majority voting rights and do not cover issues, such as the position of a spouse or other relative, who may inherit shares in the firm.

At Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors we have developed a range of affordable shareholders’ agreements for firms, with either a handful of or multiple owners, who would like better clarification of their roles and responsibilities.
