Do you have a Shareholders Agreement?

Do you have a Shareholders Agreement?


Needless to say, many shareholders do not recognise the value of having a shareholders agreement in place until it is too late. Sometimes shareholders subscribe themselves to an agreement without having really paid much attention or without fully understanding what the agreement actually said at the time it was drafted – perhaps relying on a “standard” form or a template document which they flesh out themselves, essentially committing a form filling exercise.

A Shareholders’ Agreement is essentially a contract between the members of a company and, frequently, the company itself. All the usual principals of Contract Law apply. The basic purpose of a Shareholders Agreement is to provide for how the company is to be controlled and managed, the scope of the business, rights and obligations of the parties involved, exit strategies and perhaps most importantly to decide on how to best deal with issues that could become acrimonious in the future if not agreed in advance.

We strongly recommend to all our clients to have a Shareholders Agreement tailored to fit their needs and this is a service we provide. We are also able to deal with Shareholder disputes and all areas of commercial mediation. Shane Browne, Partner and Head of the Forensic Accounting & Litigation Support Department is an accredited Mediator and is a member of the MFI (Mediation Forum Ireland) – Panel of ADR specialists and Mediators.

Frequently, problems that arise between shareholders could have been avoided had they simply of had a better Shareholders agreement at the outset of the relationship.
