Shareholder & Joint Venture Arrangements

Advising on and negotiating shareholders’ agreements – often a “must have” where there is more than one shareholder - is something we do on almost a daily basis, particularly for our owner-managed business clients.

The setting up of a joint venture involves consideration of:

  • contractual structures
  • corporate and/or LLP vehicles
  • tax efficient structuring

Joint ventures often provide the appropriate solution and structure for a specific business venture. We help in the choice of the appropriate joint venture vehicle and deal with its tax efficient structuring, associated funding and member arrangements.

Our work includes:

  • drafting shareholder and joint venture agreements
  • advising on minority protections
  • articles of association
  • joint venture choice and structuring
