25 August - Due to COVID-19 restrictions this in short seminar is now being held by live stream only.
The setting up of shareholders’ agreements, and the discussions which are necessarily a part of deciding their contents, will help your clients consider significant issues at the outset or at key points of the relationship. The current, extremely challenging, environment underlines the importance of providing effective agreements – that are suitable for all weather. This seminar will take a scenario-focused approach to selected key issues (including the impacts of "down rounds" and buy-outs) by combining commercial and litigation perspectives. Drafting options for those key issues will be stress-tested against the problems and potential for disputes that may unfold in practice.
This seminar will include:
By attending this seminar you will be able to:
All commercial and corporate solicitors (fundamental, intermediate, advanced), litigators, and any lawyers whose practice involves participation in corporate governance or advice to companies and their officers.
A short paper, in PDF format, together with a copy of the powerpoint presentation will be emailed out prior to the seminar.
