Misalignment Management in JVs: Dispute Prevention & Resolution

July 13, 2022

Joint ventures and other partnerships can be uniquely valuable corporate vehicles to access capabilities, expand into new markets, gain scale, drive cost synergies, or share risks. But such ventures are also prone to misalignment, dispute, and deadlock. This online briefing explores way joint venture partners can prevent, de-escalate, and resolve disputes. Specifically, we’ll share Ankura’s benchmarking and analysis of 137 joint venture agreements for dispute-related terms and provide insights from this data and our experience working on joint ventures to assist dealmakers and JV governors in avoiding and addressing JV disputes.
