Different Types of Joint Ventures

There is no one way to set up a joint venture or a collaboration arrangement. A joint venture is a commercial arrangement between two or more parties who are looking to pool their resources. A joint venture can be set up for a specific project or for a continuing business relationship and it can take diffrent forms. Take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Joint Venture Companies

Typically joint ventures are carried out through a company as a company structure offers the parties limited liability and it is generally easier to set out the rights between the parties in share rights. Whilst a corporate joint venture offers many benefits, joint ventures can be carried out through limited partnerships, general partnerships and also through contractual relationships.

Resolving Deadlock

Deadlock occurs when you have come to a point at either board or shareholder level when there is a fundamental disagreement between the parties. Typically, this occurs in companies owned 50:50, as no director owns a majority interest. We can advise you on the various mechanisms available to deal with deadlock.

Start-Ups & Seed Investment

Tax reliefs available under the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) are very attractive and recognise the high risk taken by seed investors. We work closely with clients and their tax advisers to ensure that the legal documentation reflects the deal struck by the parties and also complies with the SEIS rules.

Commercial Agreement Solicitors

Commercial Agreements

We prepare a wide range of commercial agreements and understand the need for your contractual documents to be robust to protect your business and your brand. We work with you to understand your business, particularly your risk exposure, in order to ensure that this is reflected in your contractual documentation.
