Why is a Shareholders Agreement important?
A Shareholders Agreement is an important contract between owners of your company. It governs how decisions are made, what happens when a shareholder wants to leave the company, how disputes are handled and other important matters.

A Shareholders Agreement is a contract made between the owners of a business, and it’s a crucial part of setting up your business. This document lays down the ground rules for how decisions are made within your business, what happens when a shareholder wants to leave the company, how disputes are handled and other important matters. Even if you’re in business with friends or family, having ground rules like these is always healthy for the relationship and the business, especially as your business grows and the stakes become higher.
Not exactly. Sprintlaw is a legal consultancy and our lawyers are not acting as solicitors when providing services through Sprintlaw. In England and Wales, law firms are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), and when we provide services to our clients we are not regulated or authorised by the SRA.
Legal consultants advise on non-contentious commercial, intellectual property and IT matters, which are not areas of practice reserved to solicitors. By structuring Sprintlaw as a legal consultancy, we can keep our running and administrative costs down and pass on the benefit of savings to our clients and provide our services at a much more competitive rate than solicitors providing the same services. This is a new model of practice which has been available since 25 November 2019 when the SRA rolled out certain regulatory reforms.
Our team is made up of experienced lawyers, who are specialists in various areas of law and have all trained at leading law firms. They have left the traditional corporate law world to join us on our mission to create a new and better way of delivering legal services. Our team has expertise in technology law, intellectual property law, contract drafting and review, corporate law and commercial law.
Our use of technology allows our team members to work remotely from around the world, including the UK, Canada and Australia. We generally work with our clients entirely online and over the phone. Our head office is based in downtown Sydney, Australia.
We’re an award-winning, totally online law firm. Forget the hassle of meeting a lawyer face-to-face. Our top-trained lawyers are ready to help wherever you are.
Our lawyers were recruited from top law firms and use our custom-built technology to provide a better and more affordable legal service.
