Joint Venture and Partnership Agreements

At MSR Solicitors, we understand the importance of joint ventures and partnerships in today’s business landscape. As such, we are proud to offer our clients high-quality drafting of such agreements under English law. Our team of experienced solicitors has a deep understanding of the complexities and nuances involved in JVs and partnerships, and we work closely with our clients to ensure that their interests are protected and their objectives are achieved.

A Bespoke Service

One of the key aspects of our joint venture and partnership agreement drafting service is our thorough approach to understanding our clients’ businesses and their specific needs and goals. We take the time to conduct in-depth consultations with our clients, gathering all relevant information and insights to ensure that the agreement we draft is tailored to their unique circumstances. This attention to detail and personalised approach sets us apart from other law firms, and has resulted in many successful collaborations for our clients.

Peace of Mind

Our joint venture and partnership agreements are drafted under English law, which is widely recognised as one of the most robust and well-established legal systems in the world. This provides our clients with the reassurance that their agreement is based on a solid legal framework, offering them a high level of protection and certainty.

For businesses of any size that are entering into a collaboration arrangement, it is crucial to have a well-drafted agreement in place to govern the relationship between the parties involved. Our agreements cover several key touchpoints, including the purpose and objectives of the collaboration, the rights and obligations of each party, the sharing of profits and losses, and dispute resolution mechanisms. We also include provisions for the termination and exit of the arrangement, as well as confidentiality and non-compete clauses to protect our clients’ interests.

Risk Mitigation

Our drafting of these agreements also takes into consideration potential risks and contingencies. We aim to anticipate any potential issues that may arise during the collaboration and include provisions to mitigate these risks. This proactive approach ensures that our clients’ interests are protected, and the collaboration can run smoothly without any unexpected hurdles.

Much of what we take for granted in modern B2B commercial contracts are principles established in historical English case law. This includes the landmark case of Salomon v A Salomon & Co Ltd (1897), which established the legal principle of corporate personality, and the case of Hickman v Kent or Romney Marsh Sheepbreeders’ Association (1915), which clarified the fiduciary duties of joint venture partners.

In addition to case law, we also consider relevant legislation, such as the Companies Act 2006 and the Partnership Act 1890, when drafting such agreements. Our thorough understanding of these laws and their implications ensures that our clients’ agreements are compliant and legally sound.
