GLS Deal Shaper™ (Shareholders Agreement)

The Problem

It takes too long to complete your investment deals. 

Related challenges include:  

  • it is inefficient to draft a long form SHA if the parties are yet to achieve an informed and aligned view of how their relationship will work
  • if the term sheet says “The Definitive Agreements shall include customary [X]” there will certainly be a long debate when the lawyers start drafting
  • each “turn” of a long-form documents costs hundreds of dollars in legal fees
  • your team's capacity is stretched
  • your business team wants to close deal quicker
  • your counterparties have limited &A experience
  • your team has limited M&A experience
  • long-form drafting is slow and tedious to review and negotiate

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a simple tool that would enable a completed, neatly aligned, full-blown SHA to emerge in a fraction of the time and cost?
