What do corporate lawyers do?
Corporate lawyers in Canada provide a wide range of legal services such as advising clients on corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, securities, and commercial transactions. Their main responsibilities are to (1) ensure regulatory and legal compliance to businesses of all sizes and (2) minimize risk allocations for their clients in transactions.
What is required to make a contract legal?
To make a contract legal in Canada, there must be an offer, acceptance, consideration, and the intention to create a legal relationship, the contract must not be illegal or against public policy, and both parties must have the legal capacity to enter into a contract and the contract should be clear, specific and not ambiguous. In addition, some provinces may have specific requirements that should be met. It’s always a good idea to consult a lawyer if there are any doubts.
What is a shareholder agreement?
A shareholder agreement is a legal contract between the shareholders of a corporation outlining the rights and responsibilities of each shareholder, and how the corporation will be managed and governed. It typically covers issues such as the ownership, management and control of the corporation, the rights and obligations of the shareholders, and the procedures for buying and selling shares. In Canada, shareholders agreements are not mandatory, but it’s highly recommended to have one as it helps to prevent disputes and misunderstandings among shareholders. Do not hesitate to contact our office if you’re considering making one.
