Joint Ventures 101: Objectives, Structure, Economics and Control
Whether your company is joining forces with another on a project to share risk, gain access to varied expertise, or just because capital is scarce, joint ventures are complicated arrangements for in-house counsel to structure and manage. From understanding your client’s economic drivers up front through managing the relationship over years and maybe decades, this presentation will share a practical overview of legal issues and other considerations that frequently come into play when working on a joint venture, and prepare you to ask the questions that your business-side clients will need to understand in order to put together a successful joint venture.
