Joint ventures

Our Business Law team has extensive experience of advising on strategic alliances and joint venture projects.

These joint ventures range from collaboration and cooperation arrangements and shareholder agreements to full-scale mergers of existing businesses or companies.

We work closely with all the parties involved to understand their commercial aims. This enables us to select the most appropriate structure and exit strategy for a joint venture project which will meet these objectives.

At the start of a joint venture, the thought of a future dispute is often the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately however, experience tells us that problems can, and often do, arise. As a result, we strongly advise our clients going down this route to consider every aspect of the venture at the outset and make a formal agreement before going ahead. This often saves a good deal of stress, anxiety and money further down the line.

Matters that we can assist with include the following:

  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Joint venture agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • LLP members agreementsĀ 
  • Investor/subscription agreements
  • Profit sharing agreements
  • Cross-option insurance agreements
