JOINT VENTURES IN BUSINESS, PARTS 1 & PART 2, 2 CLE hours
 

Businesses frequently pool their resources – capital, expertise, marketing, distribution – in joint ventures, leveraging their individual strengths by partnering with companies with complementary strengths.  Joint ventures come in many varieties, including contractual strategic alliances, entity-based ventures, and other hybrid forms. The key to JV success is carefully planning the immediate and future contributions of each party, apportioning management control and access to information, clearly defining property ownership, dispute resolution, and transfers of interests in the JV. This program will provide you with a practical guide to planning and drafting joint ventures, including financial and tax considerations, decision-making authority and transfers of interests in the JV, ownership of jointly developed property, and dispute resolution.
