Businesses frequently pool their resources – capital, expertise, marketing power – in joint ventures to grow in existing or new markets, leveraging their strengths by partnering with companies with complementary strengths. Joint ventures come in many varieties, including contractual strategic alliances and formal entity-based ventures. Keys to long-term stability and success in these ventures include understanding the current and future contributions of each party, access to information and decision-making authority over time, dispute resolution and transfers of interests in the JV. This program will provide you with a practical guide to planning and drafting joint ventures, including financial and tax considerations, decision-making authority and transfers of interests in the JV, ownership of jointly developed property and dispute resolution.
