Course Aims:

This podcast is aimed at those who advise on joint ventures, particularly those involving the use of property. The focus of this mini-series will be about structuring a joint venture and whether to use a legal entity or whether to use a contractual arrangement as a vehicle for the enterprise. In this part, two partners from McGrigors discuss why bothering with a joint venture might be worthwhile for participants and their advisers. This part also aims to identify the key ‘players’ in the JV market, what do they bring to the party, what they stand to gain what risks they might represent.

This podcast also discusses some of the common contractual methods through which a 'JV' can be undertaken including the respective advantages and disadvantages of co-ownership and overage agreements.
