Joint ventures and strategic alliances are complex, long-term arrangements that are susceptible to unforeseen turns down the road.

We assist our clients in all phases of joint ventures and strategic alliances, from the initial expression of interest through closing. At the outset, we help to identify appropriate transaction structures, define the joint venture's mission, and contextualize the new venture within our clients’ and their partners' other ongoing activities. We aim to provide our clients with a voice in the joint venture’s ongoing operation, protection for their ownership interests, and confidence in the integration of their corporate initiatives, policies, and culture. To avoid unexpected future conflicts between transaction participants, from the start, we advise clients on potential exit and deadlock resolution procedures and, later on and when necessary, we assist in unwinding the joint venture.

In addition, we assist with the other types of contracts and arrangements related to joint ventures and strategic alliances, including agreements relevant to the contribution of assets or employees, management or service with participants, licensing or allocating ownership of intellectual property, and various types of financing.

For complex multijurisdictional joint ventures and strategic alliances, we closely coordinate with non-U.S. counsel to provide efficient and seamless service. We handle these transactions from our five U.S. offices as well as our two international offices in Europe.

Industries in which our lawyers have special skill in joint ventures and strategic alliances include energy, financial services, government contracting and services, health care, pharmaceutical and life sciences, technology, media and telecommunication, and aviation. In these and other transactions, we work closely with our colleagues in practice areas such as tax, intellectual property, government contracts, health care, financial services, antitrust, labor and employment, ERISA, bankruptcy, environment, energy, and resources.
