What responsibilities does a franchisor have?

Shareholders Agreement

Get your Shareholders Agreement prepared by OpenLegal's lawyers

A shareholders agreement defines relationships between a company and its shareholders, and between shareholders themselves. A shareholder agreement should always be in place for any company with more than a single shareholder. As all businesses are different, they should have a shareholder agreement in place that has been customised by lawyers specific to the needs of that individual company. 

A shareholders agreement should cover key areas, such as issuing and selling shares, making decisions for the company, appointing directors, voting at meetings, how dividends will be managed, managing and resolving disputes, and so on.

We can assist you with

  • drafting shareholders agreements
  • reviewing or amending shareholders agreements
  • resolving issues with shareholders and directors
  • advice in relation to issuing shares and transfers

Our lawyers have extensive experience in drafting shareholder agreements, and will draft a document that is tailored to the needs of your company. We are also available to provide advice on any issue of corporate governance, or commercial law generally. 

Just get in touch with us via the form on this page or by calling us on 1300 337 997.
