Robinson Bradshaw provides comprehensive legal assistance with respect to the structuring and negotiation of equity and contractual joint ventures, and our attorneys have significant experience in the formation and documentation of limited liability companies.
We have developed a Joint Venture Handbook to assist our clients in considering the major negotiating points involving equity joint ventures, including:
- Pre-formation issues
- Financial obligations and capital requirements
- Cash distribution provisions
- Allocations of profits and losses and other tax matters
- Decision-making (governance and control) and deadlock resolution
- Default remedies
- Transfer restrictions and exit mechanisms
- Venturers as vendors, customers and employees
- Securities offering matters
- Antitrust matters
- Governing law selection
Please feel free to contact us to request a complimentary copy of the Joint Venture Handbook.
A contractual joint venture may involve requirements contracts, joint product development agreements, long-term management arrangements, licensing arrangements and other contractual mechanisms pursuant to which two separate businesses forge a relationship that is stronger than an ordinary vendor/purchaser relationship. We have the capabilities and experience to help our clients in all of these areas.
Our equity and contractual joint venture clients cover a broad spectrum of industries and include energy companies, health care providers, private equity investors, sports and entertainment clients, and real estate developers. We involve lawyers with industry experience as required for any joint venture.
