Joint ventures, or commonly known as ”mergerless merger” are popular options for businesses to consider when planning to expand into international markets. 

Companies need to evaluate the key commercial reasons and corporate objectives behind entering into joint ventures and understand how these can be reflected in the legal structure and documents. In addition, they must be willing to share the overall risks, costs, management, and success of the venture with the local partners.

This 2-part virtual workshop will equip delegates with the essential knowledge and understanding of legal and commercial issues driving the setup of international joint ventures. Participants will look at case studies, examine sample documents and receive checklists to assist them with dealing with joint ventures following the course.

What You Will Achieve

  • Recognise the commercial and legal problems that regularly arise during the life cycle of a joint venture
  • Understand the often sensitive issue of pre contract documents including the differences in common and civil law
  • Examine the different options of legal structures that can be selected depending on the commercial objectives and address the advantages and disadvantages of each option including limited companies, partnerships and contractual joint ventures
  • Overcome the challenges of decision making in a joint venture where parties are working to a common end but have different ultimate interests including minority shareholders, deadlock and options such as ‘Russian Roulette’ and Texas Shoot Out’
  • Benefit from case studies, examine sample documents and receive checklists to better deal with joint ventures
