What is a Shareholder’s Agreement?

A shareholders’ agreement is a legally binding agreement between the shareholders of a company. It sets out the rights and obligations of the shareholders in relation to the company and each other.

The shareholders’ agreement is a private document and is not lodged with the Companies Registration Office, unlike the company’s constitution (which is a public document). The shareholders’ agreement will typically address the following areas:

  1. Shareholder rights
    The agreement will set out the rights and obligations of each shareholder, such as the right to attend meetings, the right to vote, and the right to dividends.
  1. Share transfers
    Such as the circumstances in which shares can be transferred, such as pre-emption rights, rights of first refusal, and drag-along and tag-along rights.
  1. Decision-making
    The agreement will set out the decision-making process for the company, including how directors are appointed and removed, how major decisions are made, and what happens in the event of a deadlock.
  1. Dividend
    The agreement may address the payment of dividends and the timing and frequency of such payments.
  1. Competition
    The agreement may address the issue of competition between shareholders, such as non-compete clauses or restrictions on shareholders competing with the company.
  1. Confidentiality
    The agreement may contain confidentiality provisions, which may include restrictions on the disclosure of confidential information about the company or its operations.
  1. Dispute resolution
    The agreement may contain provisions for resolving disputes between shareholders, such as arbitration or mediation clauses.

A shareholders’ agreement is a valuable tool for protecting the interests of the shareholders in a company, ensuring that the company is run in a fair and transparent manner, and avoiding disputes between shareholders.

These can include internam resolution processes, mediation, arbitration, corporate governance rules, buy out or exit etc. In urgent cases disputes can give rise to freezing applications or injunctive reliefs to maintain the status quo. A review on your specific situation is to be recommended in every case as prompt and expert advice will identify the options available and enable you to make informed decisions.

Yes, a shareholder’s agreement can be amended, but any changes must be agreed upon by all parties involved.

We used Carmody Moran's conveyancing services, and we couldn't have wished for a better solicitor. Caila was extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable. As first-time buyers, everything was new to us, but she had our back every step of the way, and was looking out for our best interests during the whole process. When things turned difficult on closing date, Caila intervened promptly and sorted everything out for us, even when it looked impossible. We cannot recommend Carmody Moran enough, and we'll surely use them for any future legal affairs we may have!

I was looking for a family law consultation and asked Carmody Moran for one. Unfortunately, they didn't have the capacity, but at least they were nice enough to call me back and reply by email.So the very least you can expect from these specialists is the right attitude (unlike from many others out there on the market), but likely a lot more!

We recently engaged Carmody Moran Solicitors for the purchase of our home, on receiving a recommendation for Caila Ryan specifically. Caila and the team were a pleasure to deal with. Caila was incredibly responsive, efficient and diligent throughout the process. As first time buyers, Caila explained all steps clearly and concisely to us, which eased our stress. Caila and the team went above and beyond for us - and accommodated ad hoc meetings when required. We highly recommend Caila and the team at Carmody Moran.

We recently closed on a first time house purchase and we were very pleased with how the whole process was handled at Carmody Moran. They always responded clearly and promptly to the many queries I had along the way and were on the ball with following up issues with the sellers solicitors to keep the process moving.The reason I went with them originally over other options was because they gave a very clear breakdown for the charges and the quoted price we were given was transparent and easy to understand compared to other quotes I received.I will definitely use them again if the need arises and recommend them to my friends and family.

My partner and I recently made the acquisition of our first home and it was a lengthy and difficult process, due to the fact we were buying from a receiver.In such difficult cases, you will need a legal representation as competent and professional as Carmody Moran Solicitors on your side.We were primarily dealing with Stephanie who gave us regular updates, helped us understand what is happening and what to do. We felt our interest always came first which made every appointment with her something we looked forward to.We were also occasionally in contact with Lucy, Niamh and other brilliant members of the firm, all of whom provided an excellent level of support and knowledge in Stephanie's absence.I couldn't recommend Carmody Moran enough. I would like to give a heartfelt thank-you on behalf of myself and my partner to every one involved at the firm who helped us make our dream a reality. We will not hesitate to call upon your services again should the occasion arise.Andrew.
