Course Joint Ventures: Creating the Framework for a Successful Relationship


JV agreements deal with long term arrangements between two or more parties working together; a better way to describe them might be “relationship agreements”. Roles and responsibilities under a JV deal can be multiple and complex, with parties taking on roles which might include landlord/tenant, supplier/customer and licensor/licensee. This means that a JV is unlike any other agreement that commercial parties normally create.

This brand new course is presented by an in-house lawyer with significant experience of negotiating, drafting and working with JV agreements. It will unravel some of the complexities of the relationship and investigate the different ways by which the inherent issues can be dealt with or, at least, provided for within the JV agreement.

In particular, it will look at:

  • JV structures – incorporated, contractual
  • Financing and contributions

    • Cash
    • Assets
    • Work/services
    • Budgets
