Note on Need for Shareholders' Agreement
A Shareholders’ Agreement, while considered necessary in arm’s-length relationships, may be just as beneficial in related party shareholding situations.
Without a shareholders’ agreement there may be no way of resolving these issues without going to Court. Often, the process of preparing a governance agreement will present opportunities such as:
(a) determining what should happen when expectations are not met. Most people don’t consider that there might even be a down side let alone what happens when it transpires;
(b) committing to paper what the parties real intentions are rather than relying on the subjective recollections of the stakeholders;
(c) highlighting different intentions rather than assuming everyone else knows exactly what you mean when you say something; and
(d) eliminating ambiguity and raising real possibilities which have not been considered.
If you have any questions regarding the need for such an agreement (or the types of provisions included in them), please contact us when lodging your order.
