Joint Ventures

Our expert legal team can guide you through the complexities of setting up a joint venture and developing an effective legal and commercial framework which is right for your business.

We advise on the benefits of such an agreement and explore all the possible options for your business, as well as giving advice on the legal structure and profit-sharing agreements.

If you are entering into a venture or investing in an unknown party, we can offer commercial and straightforward advice, from structuring the joint venture to ensuring your rights are adequately protected should the venture not work out as planned. If you are an entrepreneur, we can help you to negotiate terms of a joint venture which you are comfortable with to secure that crucial investment.

Our team of experienced lawyers can guide you through sensitive negotiations, draft bespoke commercial agreements and help complete the joint venture structure. We can also support you through commercial disputes and options where there is a breach of contract or relations with a joint venture partner break down.
