The Brainstorm Room

Shareholders - register for this free webinar presented by Hamish Douch, Partner, Mortlock McCormack Law.

Who should register for this free webinar?

Shareholders in a business who do not have an agreement
Shareholders in a business operating on goodwill, a handshake, or a gentlemen's agreement - none of which is easily enforceable.

Shareholders in a business who drafted an agreement at their start-up but never got round to finalising or signing it!

Shareholders in a business who see a dispute looming and need to better understand their rights.

No Shareholder's Agreement? Ouch! Good, Bad, and Nasty

All about the presenter - Hamish Douch

Hamish is one of those rare lawyers that talk the talk in layman's language. Lawyers often talk in "legal jargon" and business owners struggle to fully understand just what is being said. To many of us, it's like needing second or third language skills!

And Hamish also walks the walk because he will regularly reply to a client's needs the same day as the request goes in. Not all lawyers are that responsive to a client's needs.

Hamish is a partner with Mortlock McCormack and specialises in legal matters for businesses. He is first and foremost a business lawyer and has handled hundreds of shareholders' agreements for SMEs over his career.

Hamish will give great value to anyone who registers for this webinar. You will be well rewarded for investing an hour of your time with Hamish.

And you'll be able to submit a question before the webinar or ask during the webinar itself. Questions Hamish doesn't get to answer during the webinar, will be answered within a few days.

Does the new Euthanasia law that’s coming mean your attorney can decide to end your life?

Appointing someone as your attorney for your personal care and welfare is a big decision, but the onus on the person you appoint should not be overloooked. We checked with our resident expert about whether the new law that is coming will mean that onus just got even more serious!

Our lawyers appeared in the High Court last week acting for an interested party supporting validation of an unsigned electronic will. These disputes can be costly for all involved and can significantly delay the administration of an estate.
Make sure you and your loved ones have a properly executed will and avoid the need to apply to the High Court to have a will validated.

The new legislation creates additional liabilities and accountability for trustees!

Register for this free webinar hosted by one of the most knowledgeable trust lawyers in New Zealand.

Andrew Logan, Senior Partner at Mortlock McCormack contributed to the new legislation so he knows what he’s talking about.

Andrew talks in plain English and will highlight the major changes and what to do next.
