About This Course
This CLE course provides an overview of the legal aspects of cross-border joint ventures (JVs). It covers the basic “nuts-and-bolts” of JVs, such as purpose, capital contributions, governance and management, veto rights and minority protections, profit distributions, transfer restrictions, exit strategies and dispute resolution, but aims to do so specifically in the cross-border or international context.
That means also addressing cultural and foreign law issues, repatriation of profits, international taxation, and potential corruption and bribery concerns. We will use a few specific examples of actual JVs to illustrate and facilitate our understanding of the foregoing legal problems.
