Joint ventures are common in commercial real estate projects. These ventures require a creative matching of strengths and a delicate balancing of risk and responsibility. They also offer a number of important benefits, including the ability for those participating to leverage their resources and expertise. These arrangements can also raise a number of complicated legal questions related to expectations, responsibility and liability. We work directly with clients to identify the opportunities and risks and then structure ventures in a way that ensures their rights and interests are protected.

Joint Venture Experience

Experience in structuring and negotiating joint venture arrangements is vital to a sophisticated commercial real estate practice. We help clients navigate joint ventures by planning ahead, understanding their goals, identifying issues and helping to structure agreements accordingly.
