Working together on the success of a joint venture

The growth of companies is often fed, among other things, by a successful partnership with other companies. Such a partnership between companies may occur in all shapes and sizes. From a contractual collaboration on an ad hoc basis to a shareholding in a joint venture.

Clear and balanced arrangements
As parties who wish to work together often do so for a longer period of time, clear and balanced arrangements are essential. These are not just (commercial and corporate governance) arrangements as to the partnership itself, but also arrangements for the situation where, at some point, the parties may no longer wish to work together.

All these arrangements promote the mutual confidence and safeguard optimum result of the partnership or shareholding. Moreover, a joint venture or shareholding may often be a good forerunner to the acquisition of a company and be used as a period of testing a business case or to bridge a period to obtain the necessary financial resources.
