Our experienced commercial team can help you to set up all kinds of structures for working with others, from informal partnerships to full joint ventures. 

Every time you decide to work with another organisation you have to choose how best to make that relationship work. Whether you are setting up a loose collaboration or a formal joint venture it is imperative that you review the options, bear in mind the legal rules, and find the right way for you.

Our joint-venture services

One of the first, and most important, decisions you will make is the structure that best suits your particular needs.

  • Full mergers or acquisitions.

  • Management of the venture.
  • Finance and resourcing, including staff and premises.
  • Shares of any profits or losses.
  • Intellectual property.
  • Confidentiality.
  • Tax consequences.
  • Dispute resolution.
  • Possible exit routes.
