Joint Venture Companies

Joint Venture Companies

Our expert lawyers advise clients on the full spectrum of joint venture and collaboration agreements, including corporate and non-corporate arrangements (where the parties each take shares in a specially formed corporate entity).

We appreciate the implications of cross-border arrangements and have advised clients on a number of international collaborations.

We ensure that we take time to understand on a practical level how the relationship is to operate, the expectations of the parties and the overall goals for both joint venture partners. Within that context, we can then provide advice on the often complex mechanisms required to ensure the success of these relationships and to protect the interests of our clients if the desired outcome is not successfully achieved or the relationship is not working as planned.

Whilst we always hope to ensure the successful outcome of the venture, we always aim to provide clients with a practical understanding of potential exit strategies should their aims not be met.

Our advice frequently relates to:

  • joint venture shareholder agreements
  • joint venture articles of association
  • joint venture agreements
  • collaboration agreements
  • confidentiality agreements
  • IP and knowhow licensing and ownership.
