1 min Read

In the first video of our 'Legal guide to startups' series, Russell-Cooke associate Leah Hayden ran through the process of setting up a business in the UK. In this second video we discuss shareholders' agreements.

Using the example of Gina, our fictional client, and her tech startup Streamzer, Alexandra explains that shareholders' agreement are a useful way of establishing clear terms to guide the allocation of shares, to dictate procedure in the case of a dispute between shareholders and even set up a protocol should the company face insolvency.

Our corporate and commercial team advise a range of clients from startups through to SMEs and more established businesses across a variety of sectors including software/technology, e-commerce, retail, travel and hospitality, security businesses, real estate, financial services, recruitment, and social media.
