Our clients range in size from emerging technology companies to multinational corporations. We often handle joint ventures that tie up U.S. and overseas interests, such as a multibillion-dollar partnership between a food and agricultural company and an entity in India. We’ve worked on multiple agreements involving interests in Brazil and China.
We’ve negotiated and documented real estate joint ventures, including agreements to bring commercial and residential interests together in a development or to build urban high-rises with retail components. For our energy clients, we’ve worked on joint ventures that proliferate wind and solar energy and broaden natural gas storage.
We offer a broad team that brings diverse skill sets to joint venture agreements, including tax, regulatory compliance, antitrust, intellectual property, environmental and litigation counsel. Given our national reputation in environmental law and issues related to use of public lands, water rights and natural resources, we are often sought out to work on joint ventures that intersect with those interests. Our tax team consults on international, federal and state tax strategy as part of structuring an agreement or entity. And we have experience resolving joint venture and alliance disputes through arbitrations or court proceedings.
