Our Services

Solicitors in Westminster, London

LLP & Shareholders Agreements

Many of our clients are entrepreneurs and start-ups who have had success and are ready to take the next step. That may entail taking on investment. The founders of the business need to ensure that they balance the protection of their interests with offering a fair deal to the incoming investors.

We are used to drafting, negotiating and amending shareholder's agreements, articles of association and joint venture agreements. We also draft option agreements, growth share provisions and EMI schemes.

In addition to acting for the founders of businesses, we have a number of clients who invest and ask us to undertake due diligence, review the documentation and provide advice. Where it is possible to negotiate the offer, we discuss minority shareholder protections.

Our dispute resolution team handles shareholder and partnership disputes ranging from breach of agreement claims to terminations and unfair prejudice claims.

Our shareholder, LLP and partnership work is multi-sector but commonly in food & beverage, retail, educationcommercial real estate and technology.


Although we are a London firm, we are fortunate to have international reach thanks to our long-standing membership of the MSI Global alliance. This provides us with trusted legal and accountancy/tax colleagues in firms across the globe and allows us to partner with them in cross-border work and access high quality advice from other jurisdictions.
