Master Class 7 –  Joint Ventures and Consortia

Companies increasingly establish partnerships through joint ventures, providing capital, assets or other resources.

The establishment of a successful corporate joint venture requires a lot of hard preparatory work of the partners to design, structure and negotiate all relevant joint venture arrangements.

A consortium is a multiparty joint venture which can be exponentially more difficult to structure.

What will you learn:

  • How to structure and negotiate the contributions to the joint venture
  • How to establish development and commercialization arrangements
  • How to agree on funding, governance and conflict resolution
  • How to appropriate plan for an exit from or of the joint venture or consortium
