What’s in a Shareholders Agreement?
A Shareholders Agreement is an important contract between business owners, that governs how decisions are made, what happens when a shareholder wants to leave the company, how disputes are handled and other important matters, such as vesting. Particularly in a startup, it’s a good idea to consider vesting provisions to ensure you and your co-founders stay committed to the business.

Vesting means the company provides potential shareholders with shares that ‘vest’ on an incremental basis over a period of time or upon achieving certain milestones.
Including vesting provisions in your Shareholders Agreement can open opportunities for different business partnerships or investments, but it can also be complicated and it’s important to get right – especially as your business grows and the stakes become higher.
Our Shareholders Agreement (Vesting) packages start at $2250 + GST. This includes a Shareholders Agreement drafted in accordance with the requirements of your business, phone consultations with a Sprintlaw lawyer, and a complimentary amendment to the final draft we provide to you.
