Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliances

We advise on the full range of joint ventures and strategic alliances, including combinations of business units, creation of partnerships, and collaborations to develop, deploy or finance products and services. Our team understands that every joint venture and strategic alliance is unique and requires a customized approach.

We start by helping our clients identify the right structure - whether that involves forming a new corporate entity, repurposing an existing entity or entering into contractual arrangements.

At Hogan Lovells, we can provide tax and regulatory advice critical to getting the structure right, as well as commercial expertise to help our clients identify and navigate potential pitfalls.

We bring to bear the resources of our subject matter experts in areas like IP and employment that are critical to so many joint ventures and strategic alliances.

Our lawyers help put in place governance arrangements to protect our clients’ positions while building trust and fostering relationships among partners, and also support venture growth and, if needed, break-ups or restructurings, including through new investors, profitable exits or continuing expansion.

Our Hogan Lovells team works as part of your team to help you achieve your business objectives through cooperative initiatives.
