Aspects of Shareholder Agreements
Many businesses allow the public to invest in them through shares. These investors are known as shareholders, and when they own a share of a company, they are part of a legally binding shareholder agreement, which stipulates the actions and responsibilities of both a company and its shareholders.

However, an experienced Austin corporate law attorney of Cagle Carpenter Hazlewood, can help you create the most comprehensive and effective shareholder agreement for your company.

Shareholder agreements stipulate many things, all of which outline a shareholder’s relationship to his or her shares and to the company itself. Some of the important aspects of many shareholder agreements include regulations regarding:
- Who can invest in a company
- The value of each stock/share
- Board of Directors for shares
- Results of shareholder sickness/illness/death
- Possible insurance policies for shares
Though the wording of each shareholder agreement for different companies will differ, its basic principles remain the same; shareholder agreements outline an investor’s share in the company and the legal actions that both a shareholder and a company can take.
