Shareholder arrangements

We also have significant expertise in putting in place various forms of shareholder arrangements. We are able to advise on the company’s constitution, including adoption of new articles of association, shareholders’ agreements, joint venture agreements and appropriate corporate structures and vehicles.

We also advise companies when taking on investment, including drafting investment agreements, subscription agreements and deeds of adherence.

We have experience advising companies with a small number of shareholders as well as more complicated arrangements with multiple classes of shareholders with varying rights. Included in this is our ability to advise on joint venture arrangements, either where two equal partners are engaged in the running of a company and require deadlock resolution mechanisms, or where there is a majority and minority relationship. Our industry expertise allows us to draft bespoke agreements taking into account the specific concerns of disparate businesses and the varying, and sometimes conflicting, interests of different shareholders.
