Dealing with Management
If you plan to acquire shares, making it happen is just a technicality. If you are already a shareholder, you simply hold shares. However, merely holding shares does not entail actual management or disposal of company assets - this is vested in the company management. The value of your shares is in fact the cumulative value of company assets, liabilities and capabilities. As a shareholder, your control over company management can be achieved either by reaching mutual agreement or by mandatory means where no such agreement is in place. There is no predefined set of instruments to prevent leakage of assets from the company or other disloyal activities by company managers or other shareholders. Based on our experience in major offshore zones, CIS countries, the Baltics and Europe, we have developed our own legal tools with proven efficiency and added value.
