Shareholder agreements are drawn up when the company is founded. They protect each individual investment made by shareholders and set out in detail how the firm will be managed.
At the time, shareholder agreements might seem like a formality, but they can be crucial if there are disagreements with the corporate structure later on.
If shareholders disagree on what direction to take, or if someone isn’t meeting their obligations, the agreement provides a solid basis for resolving disputes. In this case, the shareholder agreement can act as a safeguard.
Our insightful team of lawyers can draw up shareholder agreements that accurately reflect your commitments, your responsibilities, and your corporate structure, so you will undoubtedly be supported and protected no matter what the future brings.
Share option schemes are a distinguished way for young and fast-growing firms to reward their most valued or important employees.
Essentially, share option schemes give team members a stake in the future success of the company, by allowing them to invest in stock within the firm at some point in the future. However, the option can only be taken when a certain level of performance is reached.
Our legal team can help you set up your share option schemes, so you offer the right incentives to the right people, without letting go of more equity than you need to. Taylor Rose's team of lawyers will help you sort out the finer details such as purchase price, timings and conditions.
For many budding firms, making finance a priority and having a plan in place can be the difference between failure and success.
Our lawyers can introduce you to banks who are compassionate to the needs of fast-growing firms and can provide the finance you need in order to accomplish your next stage of growth.
Directors of fast-growing firms often use personal guarantees to secure bank funding. However, you can end up without cover if things don’t go to plan; creditors can decide who they want to target when trying to recover a debt. Therefore, it’s vital that you understand what you’re signing up for.
Our lawyers will help you set up the arrangement of a personal guarantee, so the burden is shared fairly between shareholders. Taylor Rose's legal team can also help you to cap your liabilities or limit the duration of the agreement.
Patents, trademarks, plans and other intellectual property rights (IP) are essential to the success of a growing firm, particularly in the technology sector.
