There are numerous commercial drivers behind the rising popularity of joint ventures as a business/investment structure, including obtaining access to new markets within and across jurisdictions and harnessing the synergies of complementary skill sets.
By advising on how the joint venture should be structured along with related issues, such as the sharing of intellectual property and tax considerations, and documenting the terms of the party’s collaboration, our corporate lawyers help drive your joint venture ideas forward.
We continue to provide support to the joint venture throughout the course of its lifespan by preparing service agreements and other commercial agreements relevant to its operations.
In addition to offering legal insights, our lawyers are experienced at advancing our clients’ interests while being attuned to the ongoing and developing relationship between the respective parties. This contributes towards fostering a spirit of trust which is the cornerstone of any successful joint venture.
