Shareholder Rights

Introduction

Going into business with others is the commercial equivalent of getting married; and the divorces which often follow can be just as painful as a marriage breakdown.

So it is essential to treat any business venture just as seriously as getting married.

There may be no such thing as a legally binding pre-nuptial agreement in English law, however, in business, there are steps you can take to best protect your position. Similarly, if business relationships break down, failing to get good advice at an early stage could cost you dearly.

Shareholder Rights aims to outline the legal position of shareholders in a Private Limited Company, the pitfalls, the precautions that can be taken and what can be done if it all goes sour.
