Shareholder Agreement

Directors of a property rich holding company wish to provide for their shareholdings to pass to their respective families through generations.

We devise a form of shareholder agreement which permits shares to be freely transferred within a narrow family group for two generations and thereafter for the shares to be offered at fair market value to the other shareholders. We frequently advise on a wide range of bespoke shareholder agreements offering solutions to business owners concerned with what will happen to their businesses following their death or retirement.
