Joint Ventures

A joint venture is an enterprise undertaken by two entities that retain their separate corporate forms. Because these types of partnerships can be highly complex, often requiring the formation of a separate legal entity, it is generally necessary to have the advice and assistance of a skilled joint venture attorney to help guide the companies through the various legal implications of such a project.

Understanding regulations surrounding joint ventures

When a company partners with another business to form a joint venture, there are numerous legal hurdles to overcome.  Joint ventures have potential implications in antitrust, labor, employment and other types of contract law.  The formation of a joint venture requires the counsel of an attorney who is knowledgeable about both federal and state law governing these types of arrangements.

A properly drafted joint venture agreement is the cornerstone to any successful joint venture. This agreement must be carefully negotiated and written, including items such as the object of the joint venture, provisions for management of the venture, selection of a corporate form for the new entity if necessary, allocation of costs and profits for the project, and the duration of the joint venture. The drafting of such a document requires a thorough understanding of various aspects of corporate, finance and contract law, in addition to an ability to view such agreements on a global scale.
