Partnership & Shareholder Agreements

Whether you are an existing firm or a new firm the drafting and agreement of a Partnership (including Members) a Shareholders agreements is essential to ensure that the relationship between the owners is clear. The generation of an agreement to regulate the relationship of the partners is not just a regulatory requirement but is also a fundamental element to the managing of a business.

Partners and Shareholder agreement, if drafted, can often be forgotten about and over time does not reflect the reality of the relationships between the owners. If a Partnership or Shareholders agreement was never drafted or has been allowed to become out of date the resolution of issues between the partners becomes hard to manage.
