Investment Agreements

Blacks Solicitors’ Corporate team has extensive experience in funding arrangements for businesses including Syndicate Arrangements, and Mixed Equity and Loan Investments.

We can prepare Investment Agreements setting out the level of funding to be provided by the investor, the number and type of shares to be allotted to the investor, the method of distributing dividends, management and control of the business, and when to wind up the business.
