Joint Ventures and Shareholders’ Agreements

Rolls and Royce, Hewlett and Packard, Ben and Jerry’s – great partnerships can lead to great things. In fact, many of the world’s most successful businesses are collaborations.

If you are looking to create a joint venture with another business or partner, make sure you start out with another important collaboration firmly in place – your relationship with your lawyer.

In the world of joint ventures and shareholders’ agreements, standard documents and general advice simply will not cut it. Your unique business structure and joint venture with all its quirks and peculiarities requires the expert and focused attention of a dedicated lawyer.

At Smithfield Partners, our corporate lawyers understand how fundamental and sensitive a collaboration with another organisation can be. And while shared commercial goals can lead to great success, our Central London based lawyers will ensure that you and your business are prepared for any unforeseen twists and turns that the future may bring.

Through expertly drafted documents that reflect your individual circumstances, we will work with you to create the bespoke corporate structures that will bring your commercial intentions to life.

Shareholders’ Agreements

Any private company with more than one shareholder needs a shareholders’ agreement setting out the shareholders’ rights, obligations and powers. It is the framework under which the company can operate and is a vital document that, again, should not be left to standard or template documents.

At Smithfield Partners, we work with a wide range of businesses, from start-ups to established corporations.

Make sure your business venture gets the very best start and contact us today for more information. We will partner you with a lawyer who is the best fit for your business, or you can contact one of our joint venture specialists in London directly by viewing their profile.
