Roschier Insights Seminar: Shareholder agreement disputes – how to avoid the “monster agreements”

We are arranging a hybrid event where we will discuss vulnerabilities in different kinds of shareholder agreements, both in the negotiation phase as well as during implementation and possible disputes. We will hear both a representative of the client side as well as experts from Roschier's Dispute Resolution, M&A and Corporate Advisory teams. The event will be held in Finnish.

When: Tuesday 23.11 at 8:30-10:30 (program starts at 9:00)

Roschier’s experts Tero Jormanainen, Paula Airas, Aapo Saarikivi and Seppo Kymäläinen, together with Chief Legal Counsel Hannu Mäkinen from Telia Asset Management, will discuss, among other things, the following topics:

  • Aspects of shareholder agreements that often pose a challenge during negotiations, during implementation or in disputes.
  • Different situations where shareholder agreements are used (Venture Capital, Private Equity + Management -situations, Joint Venture-situations) and specific questions relating to each set-up.
  • How to anticipate, avoid and mitigate problems.
  • Long-lasting agreements and changing circumstances, decision-making, contractual fines, access to information, non-compete clauses, exit agreements and terminations of contract, dispute resolution and much more.

This hybrid event will be in Finnish and for clients, by invitation only. You can choose to attend in person or by livestream.
