Shareholder and partnership agreements

The need for specialist advice:

If you are in business with other people it is vital to have a written record of your agreements regarding the running of the business.

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall we have the broad experience and technical expertise to prepare legally binding shareholder or partnership agreements.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

By having an agreement in place at the outset, you can avoid enormous costs and great emotional stress if disputes occur in the future – when the business could be worth many millions of pounds.

Crucially, you need to consider what might happen if one shareholder or partner dies. Usually the surviving owners want the right to purchase the deceased’s share of the business – but real life situations show that this is not always straightforward.

Our sensitive solicitors will consult widely with shareholders or partners to gain a firm understanding of the business before drafting an agreement that satisfies everyone’s needs – now and in the future.
