Advantages Of Taking Part In A Joint Venture

Nov 18, 2019 | Articles

Joint Ventures

A joint venture usually offers great advantages, but it also can come with certain risks which could be attributed to the high complexity of arrangements of this sort. The difference between a joint venture and a partnership lies in the fact that the latter concerns an ongoing business in all regards, whereas the former only concerns a single project. Remember that proposing a joint venture is the beginning of the negotiation, not the end with every venture having a specific purpose, which should be described in a written joint venture agreement that defines the asset contribution of and distribution to each party for the venture.

The new company is operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the two or more companies that engage in the venture despite the new company being considered a legally independent entity.

Advantages Of Joint Ventures:

Your business growing faster increased productivity and higher revenue generation is one of the major joint venture advantages. Other benefits of joint ventures include increased capacity, new markets, and distribution networks become accessible, there’s a partner to share risks and costs (i.e. liability), higher accessibility to greater resources, such as technology and finance.

Another huge advantage is flexibility as your venture having a limited lifespan and only covering a part of what you do may limit the commitment for both parties and the exposure of the business.

Risks Associated With Joint Ventures:

Disadvantages of a joint venture become prominent if the abilities or resources of the business you have formed a relationship with aren’t a match for yours. Although a lot of time and effort goes into building the right business relationship, still it can be tough to avoid all joint venture risks. Problems like inadequate support on the partner’s end in the early stages, poor co-operation due to differences in cultures and management styles, partners having different opinions and objectives for the venture, the objectives of the venture aren’t well-defined for everyone involved, etc.- are bound to arise.

The business plan should be clearly communicated to everyone involved for the venture to work. It is an only comprehensive research and detailed analysis of the aims and objectives that can set you up for success.

If you are looking forward to forming a joint venture, a Florida Entrepreneur Law lawyer can help represent, draft and protect your business’ interests in the agreement. Hiring a business dispute attorney in Florida is a wise choice as he/she can draft and negotiate the contract to your liking. Besides, an attorney can help resolve a dispute if a joint venture goes haywire.

Expand and grow your business by partaking in a joint venture:

  1. Higher accessibility to geographic locations.
  2. Access to specialized knowledge/staff.
  3. Access to new markets.
  4. Sharing risks and costs.
  5. Flexibility.

Experts recommend that you enter into a confidentiality and non-circumvent agreement when you are at the initial phase of exploring a potential joint venture. The parties in a joint venture will enjoy certain rights, including equal control and power over the project/transaction and equal ownership of the project.

Testimonials

"Wow! What can I say. Michelle was amazing with us. I met Michelle through a networking contact and was not disappointed one bit. We needed advice on our business lease and she was right there to help us through it. She responded so quickly and completed the project efficiently with professionalism, honesty and transparency.

It is rare to find professionals who care and are completely honest with you from the start and understand that starting a new business is intimidating at times. Michelle is one of these rare lawyers who took the time and made us feel like VIPs. This may be the first time we used her services, but definitely not the last!"

- Anna Lamothe

"I met Michelle and Amanda at an event in January 2021. My first thoughts were the universe aligned. I didn't know I was going to need a business lawyer for my first LLC. There was and is so much I don't know when it comes to business ownership. I wanted to ensure I did things the right way. They have been a pleasure to work with thus far. I am grateful for their transparency. True professionalism, work ethics, and helping my business partner and I through the process. Amanda has also helped me form my second LLC as well. Who knew! I would highly recommend them if you are starting and LLC or at any part of the process."

With that being said, I completely trust in Michelle's ability to work diligently and efficiently - she truly knows her stuff.

- Anish Dave

"I recently had a consultation with Michelle Suarez, Esq in regards to a dispute within my corporation and I am very pleased with her services. Michelle works fast! We were able to set up our initial consultation within a few days of connecting.

Michelle was on time, prepared for the call, professional, and straight to the point (which I really appreciated)! She is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to listen to my concerns and provide me with as much information as I needed so that I could make an informed decision. Highly recommend!"

- Marissa Case

"I hired Michelle to handle a situation where I quit my job and started my own business. She helped me through the process of setting up my company and then also represented me in a dispute I had with my former employer. We were successful in that dispute, thanks to Michelle’s hard work.

It was so easy to set up my consultation, her turnaround time was super fast, and I could always reach her about any questions I had. I had a great experience with her and I will go to her in the future for any other business needs my company has."

- Omar Dodero

"I was referred to Michelle and we were beyond pleased with her services. She was aggressive, professional and always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. My case had a positive outcome and I cant thank her enough. Without her knowledge and quick work I'm not sure things would of ended up in my favor. I would most definitely recommend her for all your legal needs. She truly cares for her clients and she works very hard to get you positive results."

- Cassy Longsworth

"I'm a lawyer myself, but I do not practice business law. Michelle is my go-to lawyer for all my business law needs. I also recommend her to my friends and my immigration clients when they need business advice. I only recommend professionals who I know to be honest, responsive, fair, and smart (I do NOT accept referral fees from other lawyers). So many lawyers are lazy, incompetent, and overcharge you. They don't answer your questions or they let their staff do it all and you never hear from your actual lawyer again. Michelle will pay close attention to your case and charge you fairly for her superior work. Thank you Michelle!"

- Jill E. Grucan, Esq.
