A Shareholders Agreement, if written correctly, will a) limit each shareholder’s ability to transfer his/her/their/its shares in a corporation, b) provide for certain voting rights or limitations on voting rights, and c) give the corporation and each shareholder the option to purchase the shares of a deceased or withdrawing shareholder. Its purpose is to minimize disputes, allow for smooth transitions, and reserve voting power to those shareholders who have provided the most capital or who have negotiated the ability to guide and operate the corporation’s business.
