• The Corporate team at Brachers has a great deal of experience of advising companies and individual shareholders.

    We can advise on:

    • Shareholder Agreements and Articles of Association; particularly in complex cases where the parties require specific restrictions on how and when shareholders can transfer their shares
    • provisions to deal with a minority shareholder not being able to block a sale of the company
    • different classes of shares, each having different rights (whether those rights are voting rights, dividend rights or rights on a return of capital)
    • enhanced levels of control for minority shareholders
    • Cross-option arrangements to provide a mechanism where the shares belonging to a shareholder can be purchased if that shareholder dies
    • Share Option Schemes, and particularly the tax efficient Enterprise Management Incentive scheme (EMI)
