Shareholders Agreement

Why choose a lawyer?

Notaries are limited in the services they may provide. Only Lawyers can provide you with legal advice on issue that may come up before, during and after the completion of your transaction. Also, there is a misconception that Notaries are cheaper than Lawyers. Lawyers’ conveyancing fees compare favorably with Notaries’ fees.

Frequently Asked Questions on Shareholders Agreement

What is Independent Legal Advice and why is it important?
Independent Legal Advice (“ILA”) refers to legal advice given by a lawyer who is not involved in the transaction with the client. ILA is usually required by lenders and other sophisticated parties who want to ensure that their clients are fully informed of the content and consequences of a transaction. ILA should be obtained by any person who is self represented and who is involved in a transaction where all, or some, of the parties are represented by the same lawyer.
