Agreements between shareholders of private companies

01 Mar 2017

What is a shareholders’ agreement? The shareholders (or members) in a private limited company may wish to have a separate agreement between all or some of them governing the way their company is to be run and their respective relationships.

These guidance notes offer an outline of the relevant provisions, but they are not comprehensive and should not be relied on as authoritative. Specific advice should be obtained on any particular issues.
