Joint Venture & Shareholder Arrangements

Advising on and negotiating terms entered into by several members of different companies or several members of the same company is something that we do on a daily basis.

 The setting up of a joint venture involves consideration of:

  • letters of intent / heads of terms / teaming agreements
  • corporate LLP or LP structures
  • tax treatment
  • protections customarily used on multi-party structures
  • exit rights (put, call, buy-out, etc) most suitable to reflect commercial requirements

Together with our Corporate Finance team we have a strong reputation representing shareholders (and the company) in respect of:

  • shareholders' agreements
  • articles of association
  • associated service agreements.
