JV Transactions: How to Structure a Joint Venture

October 5, 2022

Joint venture deals have many complexities not found in a full acquisition – defining voting rights, governance structures, and operational roles just to name a few. In this webinar, we’ll focus on how companies can more effectively manage JV-specific complexities and transactions to get to a better JV deal faster.  We’ll discuss recent trends in JV transactions, key JV terms, and how to effectively run a JV deal process. The presentation will also include Ankura’s benchmarking data on hundreds of JV transactions, as well as advice from JV practitioners who will share lessons learned from JV deals.
