We have a successful track record in advising owner managed businesses, SMEs and larger companies (including PLCs) on corporate, financial, transactional and organisational issues.
We advise clients across all sectors on the merits of having a Shareholders’ Agreement. In a rapidly growing and changing industry, such as telecommunications, it is even more important to have a Shareholders’ Agreement in place to allow business owners to regulate their relationship with each other, the company and its directors.
A Shareholders’ Agreement not only helps to mitigate against costly and potentially damaging shareholder disputes, should they arise, it also structures shareholder exits and business sales should the shareholders wish to sell the company or its business in the future.
Many of our Agricultural and Commercial Property clients are approached by mobile phone mast operators with requests and proposals to place mobile phone masts on their land to help improve the quality of mobile phone signals as well as 3G and 4G coverage in the UK.
Unlike standard commercial contracts and leases, telecommunication agreements can be complicated and can place a range of specific, and sometimes onerous, conditions on landowners. Mast operators are also granted certain rights under the Electronic Communications Code. It is, therefore, vital that you have peace of mind that your rights and interests are protected.
Our Commercial and Property teams can help you understand telecoms lease agreements and assist you with the negotiation of the necessary contracts associated with the operation and management of masts and mast sites.
We can assist you with negotiating:
If you already have a mobile phone mast on your land, it is advisable to revisit the terms of your agreements and leases at regular intervals to ensure that you are receiving fair and current market rates as well as the protection you require to allow you to deal with your property in the way you want to in the future. The commercial contracts and leases concerning older masts, and mast sites, can be significantly out of date, often leaving landowners with relatively low rental incomes.
We will provide you with practical, commercial and strategic advice on the full range of legal issues.
From the outset, we will work closely with you to ensure that we have agreed on objectives and defined a clear roadmap. This means that any work completed is focused on achieving a specific goal.
We will then provide you with a clear cost estimate. This will continue throughout the whole process so that you are kept informed and can make appropriate decisions.
Our team will make sure that all advice provided is clear and that in some circumstances a common-sense approach is often required.
