Joint Ventures

We’re experts in the structuring and creation of joint ventures

From collaboration and co-operation arrangements to shareholder agreements and joint venture agreements, we have extensive experience in the structuring and creation of joint ventures and other collaborations.

We protect the interests of our clients, while working collaboratively with all parties and stakeholders to get the best deal done.  


Enjoy the advantages, avoid the risks

A joint venture is an arrangement between two or more participants who agree to co-operate to achieve a particular objective. They’re a popular method of collaboration and structure for potential growth because they can help with accessing new markets, launching new products, removing potential international barriers and delivering economies of scale.

We take the time to work with you, understand your collaboration goals and get decisions right. Whether it’s a commercial collaborative agreement or more formal corporate structure (such as a special purpose vehicle or limited liability partnership) we give you the confidence to proceed and can work with you throughout the length of your agreement.


We'll help you determine

  • How to structure your joint venture
  • How much each party is contributing (either in assets, cash or effort)
  • What intellectual property will be generated and how it will be protected
  • Whether activities will be carried out in more than one country
  • The length and termination/exit arrangements for your joint venture

We partner with you

We work closely with colleagues in our commercial, property, employment and private wealth teams (as required) together with your external advisors, like accountants, to navigate the many practical, financial and legal considerations which may arise. That’s not all, as one of our clients you’ll become part of our corporate network which could help you develop new opportunities and expand your contacts in this area.
