  • An Update: Rights of First Refusal, Shot-Gun, and Drag-Along Clauses — What Are We Talking About Anyway?

    $65.00

    Shareholder agreements often provide buyout mechanisms by which shareholders can control the disposition of shares. While well-drafted buyout mechanisms can protect shareholder interests and prevent disputes, they can also create unanticipated obligations on shareholders that give rise to litigation. This paper discusses three common buyout mechanisms: Rights-of-First-Refusal, Shot-Gun Clauses, and Drag-Along Clauses. Background information and principles of interpretation are discussed for each mechanism, as well as a review of relevant case law. Litigation issues that have arisen from buyout mechanisms are identified, and ways to improve strategies when relying upon, enforcing, and drafting buyout mechanisms are highlighted.
