Shareholder and Joint Venture Agreements

Going into business with a third party is a major step and it is important that your relationship with your business partners is well documented in an appropriate agreement from the outset, whether that be a partnership agreement, shareholder agreement (with articles of association), limited liability partnership agreement or joint venture agreement.

A clear understanding of the parties’ objectives is paramount in such agreement and our corporate lawyers are experienced in advising both individuals and corporates in a variety of sectors on these types of arrangements for both companies and groups of companies based in the UK and cross-border.

Our recent experience includes:

  • Drafting a shareholders’ agreement and articles of association in order to put in place the legal framework to enable a family company to pass the business down to the younger generation
  • As part of a VIMBO (vendor initiated management buy-out) we drafted the shareholder’s agreement and articles of association of the purchasing vehicle of an international group
