By the time you read this book, you`ll understand how a shareholders` agreement protects business owners from unexpected life events, why a shareholders` agreement is sometimes referred to as a “business will,” and what you should ask your lawyer if you`re willing to meet with your own shareholders` agreement. My goal is to demystify shareholder agreements for corporate advisors and accountants, who often become the first point of contact for business owners with the issue of a shareholder agreement. This book will also be useful for business owners who feel comfortable creating their own shareholders` agreement from a model they have purchased. 16.2 Disputes between the parties, owners and/or the company under the shareholder agreement or other agreements between the parties, owners and/or the company are settled through reciprocal negotiations. .
