The corporate team has worked on a number of substantial joint ventures in recent years, often working closely with our technology team, in particular, given the nature of these projects. We advise on a number of cross-border, international projects including a complex food production JV for a client with a Czech Republic trading partner; advising a software company client on a project in South Africa; and advising an internationally renowned client on a series of publishing-related JVs in China. We have also recently seen a number of UK JV projects in the renewable energy sector.
Advising successfully on joint ventures requires a commercial understanding of the relative position of the parties and what they each really want from the project so that it can be structured correctly. There is usually more than one option in terms of the project vehicle (if a separate entity is in fact required at all). It is particularly important in cross-border joint ventures to understand the different ways in which business is done abroad and to make sure that the project is managed properly. We will take responsibility for the entire project and engage local lawyers in the relevant jurisdiction, who we know well, to give local advice and deal with local corporate, property and other matters, giving clients a seamless service from start to finish.
