Shareholder Agreements

Many small businesses operate with a degree of informality, which often extends to the relationship between the founders.

However, as the business grows that informality can lead to unforeseen issues arising, leading to a breakdown in the relationships you value.

In many cases this is within businesses set up by family members or good friends who believe their personal relationship will mitigate against conflicts.

With no shareholders agreement in place, disagreements can turn into drawn out, ugly disputes often ruining the business and the founder’s relationships.

At Dallas & Co we help you foresee potential disputes and aim to advise business owners at the earliest opportunity as to the nature of the agreements they should have in place.

We help business owners to formalise their relationships and obligations, helping to prevent conflicts as the business grows.
