What Is a Joint Venture?

A joint venture occurs when two or more parties enter into a business arrangement for the purpose of achieving a specific goal. During the venture, each party equally shares the profits, losses, and risks associated with the arrangement. However, the venture is a standalone entity, separate from each party and their business interests.

Although they do not have to be partnerships, depending on the structure, some partnership laws may apply to joint venture agreements, such as laws and regulations dealing with income tax.

Joint ventures are usually limited in time and scope and are often used by businesses to enter foreign or non-local markets. For instance, a business looking to enter a market in a different state or country can do so by entering into a joint venture with a business already in that country — rather than physically moving part of the business there.

What Are the Rights of Joint Venturers?

Joint ventures are attractive because of the rights afforded to each participant, which may include:

  • Equal ownership over the business or business project of the venture — this includes equal influence and decision-making powers unless parties agree to assign one party more control or influence.
  • The right to end participation in the joint venture under predetermined circumstances.
  • A right to share in profits equally or in a manner determined by agreement through a contract.

A participant in a joint venture also has the right to continue operating as a separate entity throughout the life of the joint venture, as well as after the joint venture has ended.

How Our Experienced Attorneys Can Help You Benefit from a Joint Venture Agreement in Denver, CO

Joint ventures can be beneficial arrangements when entered into wisely. However, entering into one without proper preparation and understanding can lead to significant business liability and difficulties.

At Sequoia Legal, we make sure our clients' interests are reflected and protected in the documents we prepare. We are meticulous in ensuring that all questions relating to the venture are adequately addressed before our clients begin working with other companies, such as questions about resource allocation.

We make sure to clarify which parties are responsible for providing the precise resources necessary to the venture, such as employees, materials, intellectual property and any other type of resource. Doing so helps us ensure that both sides equally contribute resources to the joint venture.

Our Successful Cases

No Penalty Voluntary Disclosures to US Gov

Companies routinely face complex situations when exporting or doing business internationally. There is a complex set of laws and regulations applicable to the persons, places and products involved in international business. Businesses sometimes end up violating or running afoul of these highly technical and complicated rules. Sequoia Legal has represented various US and foreign companies in conducting internal investigations relating to suspected violations of US sanctions and export controls. Following completion of these internal investigations, where necessary, we have assisted clients in voluntarily disclosing suspected violations to US authorities and have obtained favorable outcomes, including reduced penalties or no penalties. This has allowed our clients to sleep at night and continue to expand and do business internationally in compliance with applicable US law.

Successful Sale of Technology Startup

Our team at Sequoia Legal regularly helps sellers and buyers of businesses navigate the intricacies of the purchase and sale process to help them achieve their dreams. In this case, Sequoia Legal was brought on by the owners of a local technology company in a sale to a strategic acquirer with a total transaction value in the multiple millions. We successfully negotiated transaction agreements, including due diligence with the buyer and post-closing employment agreements, and closed the transaction within an expedited 30 days period. As part of this process, we helped educate the sellers through their first transaction and work through the emotional roller coaster of selling your business.

Rock Solid FCPA and Export Compliance Programs

Our Denver export compliance law firm has extensive experience with export administration regulations, the FCPA and international trade and can assist clients with developing export control and FCPA compliance programs. We ensure each client follows appropriate FCPA, export control compliance and foreign trade regulations for their industry, and our clients hail from nearly every industry sector. The attorneys at Sequoia Legal have successfully assisted and provided continued guidance for several international companies regarding the internal implementation of FCPA and export compliance plans. These companies employ and engage in various transactions with individuals and companies around the world. To ensure continued compliance with US sanctions laws and regulations following the implementation of the FCPA and export compliance programs, Sequoia Legal has conducted company audits, interviews and internal FCPA training programs. Due to the diligence of the Sequoia Legal team, zero issues or enforcement actions have been taken by the US government against Sequoia's clients for any FCPA or export related matter. An investment in a Sequoia Legal compliance plan has saved our clients time, focus and money.

Searching for Search Fund Success

And Finding It! Sequoia Legal regularly helps search funds and individuals find, acquire and successfully build new businesses. Our client was a search funder focused on acquiring a company in the professional services industry. We assisted in negotiating several LOI's that fell through, but as a result of that process, we found the right acquisition fit and assisted our client in executing an LOI, conducting due diligence, structuring the deal, negotiating the purchase agreement, working with the SBA and completing a deal that included a cash payment, SBA loan and seller financing with a variable note that reduced if certain revenue metrics were not achieved. We then assisted our client with several "tuck-in" acquisitions to further augment and accelerate the client's goals and exponentially grow revenue.

Jason L.

I can't say enough great things about Hunter and Andrew and the Sequoia team. We purchased a small business, and they were efficient, knowledgeable, and direct with their feedback about the deal and its structure and available when we needed them. We hope to do many more transactions with Hunter and Andrew, and the team. If you're looking for great counsel for a business transaction (and I'm sure any other matter they'd represent) - you'll be in great hands working with Sequoia. Bravo!

How long does it take to draft a joint venture agreement?

Barring unusual issues or complexities with the document, a joint venture agreement takes three to five business days to draft.

What is the difference between a share purchase agreement and a joint venture?

A share purchase agreement involves one business purchasing a portion of shares from another business, whereas a joint venture deals with two or more parties creating a new business or other contractual relationship.

What are some examples of a joint venture?

A car company entering into an agreement with another car company to manufacture automobiles is an example of a joint venture. Two independent contractors pooling resources to win a construction bid is also an example.
