services › joint ventures

We negotiate and document both national and international joint venture arrangements, advising joint venture partners on the legal, commercial and tax aspects of their intended relationships and projects, including the impact of international tax treaties.

Our work in this area has included:

  • the joint venture arrangements for the bidding company to acquire a $100 million majority interest in a large listed agribusiness company;
  • a joint venture for the mass production in Morocco and marketing internationally of blueberries, with joint venture partners located in Australia, UK and Morocco;
  • a joint venture between an Australian university and one of Australia’s largest private education providers to conduct educational courses for thousands of overseas students at campuses in major capital cities in Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and USA;
  • the structuring of joint ventures in China through offshore entities such as wholly owned foreign entities (WOFE).
