I was looking to get a legal pro to revise a Shareholder

Customer Question

Hi Pearl- I was looking to get a legal pro to revise a Shareholder Agreement. Is this something I can get done through here. As it appears to be about asking questions mostly... thanks
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Victoria However the new company for shareholder agreement is NSW
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I already have the shareholder draft complete... I need a few ammendments that I have documented and I need them to give me an opinion on my risks. So once they have a quick review then can advise costs

We are only here to guide you. If you wish to have a full service you will need to engage the services of a Solicitor and be prepared to pay them their hourly rate.

Expert:  Leon replied 8 months ago.

I need to send you a cost agreement and I am not in the office.

My hourly rate is $330.00 inclusive of GST.

Also in your email can you tell me what you wish to ensure in the agreement.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Hi Leon,The Shareholder Agreement is the rules that will define the rules around the establishment of the new company. The other x2 Directors have drafted a document that needs revising. I have added the amendments I need.I need security that I will gain priority service from the primary supplier being 23 Digital Pty Ltd.As well as defined rules in the terms of our engagement. I hope the x2 documents all make sense.After the Shareholder agreement has been approved I have been advised that a licensing agreement between the principle supplier and new company would be a secure investment. Look forward to you quote on the Shareholder agreement and further advice. Thanks.RegardsJeremy

You cannot get a benefit over the other shareholders this is not how it works.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Not sure what you mean- most points discussed with other Directors. Will speak Monday. Do you wish to supply your pricing? Thanks.
Expert:  Leon replied 8 months ago.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Hi Leon- I sent the information to the email you requested. Thanks.
Expert:  Leon replied 8 months ago.

I have followed up the documents and I will have them later tonight.

I will contact you in the morning with a cost agreement and we can go from there.
