Joint Venture Agreements

Joint Venture Agreements

A joint venture is an agreement between two or more parties allowing them to work together as one entity on a project or form a new business, whilst still retaining independence legally to continue additional separate business activities.

Joint venture agreements (JVA) outline the responsibilities of the various parties involved. Individuals and companies enter into agreements for all sorts of reasons, whether in collaborating individual talents into one objective, or a group of companies joining together and forming a new company to meet a commercial goal.

The agreements will be unique to each individual business, depending on individual circumstances and requirements, but traditionally key items included include the sharing of profits, losses and liability, how disputes are to be handled, the management of the venture, responsibilities of the parties and an exit strategy.

Due to the unique nature of the joint venture agreement it is important to have one drawn up by a legal professional, experienced in corporate law, who will be able to assess the needs of the parties and tailor an agreement to the correct format for your business structure and requirements.
