Joint ventures

Joint ventures

We act for a number of clients that find synergies between their own business and that of others in their marketplace and, sometimes, even competitors.  The combined performance of two (or more) parties or companies will invariably be greater than the sum of the individual parts.

We help to put in place foundations for the relationship by documenting the commercial aspects of the venture; who will contribute what, who should do and manage what, how the proceeds should be shared and – in the event that the relationship doesn’t quite work out – an exit strategy.

These are all important factors that have to be considered from the star. With our help, you can put in place the ground rules at the outset so that you are free to focus on the most important thing- running the business.
