Sarah Liddiard, Associate Solicitor at Machins Solicitors, shares her thoughts on the importance of company structure and Shareholders Agreements. She discusses making sure your company’s legal structure is fit for purpose when the business is established and at critical change points.

She likens a Shareholders Agreement to a prenuptial agreement for companies –  a way of documenting the structure of the company and a plan for how the business will be run.
