At Talbots Law, we believe in collaboration. Our Corporate & Commercial team know how exciting a joint venture can be, and with the right legal assistance, everything should fall perfectly into place.

Working with another company can be a way of growing or diversifying your own business. A joint venture is like any commercial relationship, and having the appropriate legal agreements in place ensures both sides are clear on their role and responsibilities.  Our Corporate & Commercial Team have years of experience of providing legal advice in relation to joint ventures and are on hand to advise you through the process. 

Both parties involved in a joint venture need to be clear on:

  • What the undertaking relates to;
  • Why it is being formed;
  • How long it will exist;
  • The management of the venture.

Profit sharing, management structures, intellectual property rights and investment matters will require some thought too.  We will take you through all of these aspects of setting up a joint venture and explain it in clear, simple language.

Joint Ventures FAQ

What should I look for in a joint venture partner?
The ideal joint venture partner is someone whose strengths complement yours.  For example, if you have a new product to launch, co-venturers with contacts and experience in sales, distribution and customer services may be the perfect partners.

What due diligence will need to be completed?
Due diligence on the other company entering the joint venture will include checking that they are able to enter such an agreement and that they own the assets that will be forming part of the venture.  We will ensure that the individual partners’ obligations and participation are clearly set out.
