Joint Venture and Strategic Alliance Agreements

In a joint venture, your business partners with another organization on a particular business endeavor. However, instead of merging the two business entities, each entity retains its separate identity while bringing its particular resources to the venture. For example, two game developers might agree to form a joint venture to develop a new game that neither has the resources to develop and market on their own. 

In a joint venture, both business organizations are typically sharing assets, staff, intellectual property, expenses, and even the profits from their undertaking. While this can present an incredible opportunity for both parties, joint venture agreements must be carefully drafted to avoid misunderstandings and prevent later disputes.
