Joint Ventures & Strategic Alliances

Related Professionals


Our attorneys regularly advise clients on strategic alliances, which have become an essential tool for achieving corporate objectives and include a broad range of collaborative arrangements among businesses. On behalf of clients in wide-ranging industries, we negotiate stand-alone joint ventures involving the creation of new entities, cross-equity and minority equity investments, complex contractual collaborations, teaming arrangements, licensing arrangements, and product development, manufacturing and marketing alliances.

Our strategic alliance practice not only includes transactional and tax experience, but also antitrust, intellectual property and other disciplines that are necessary to properly structure these complex arrangements. We understand that strategic alliances are different from other transactions and we apply our skills in a way that promotes the success of the strategic alliances on which we work. In particular, the success of a strategic alliance depends largely upon the ongoing ability of the alliance parties to work together. We understand that the negotiation process must foster a cooperative relationship among the parties, and we know how to structure alliances to include incentives and safeguards to promote the success of the alliance.
