Brian Hamilton Authors Bloomberg Law Article on Cross-Border Joint Ventures

May 2012

Mr. Hamilton authored the article, “Cross-Border Joint Ventures: When They are Useful and What to Watch Out For,” published in the May 2012 issue of Bloomberg Law Reports – Transactional Law. The article examined the potential benefits of joint ventures, but more importantly, the obstacles parties may encounter when entering into these types of transactions. The parties need to consider potential areas of conflict like governance, future funding, exits and liquidity expectations, as well as any cross-border tensions that may arise in the joint venture. Mr. Hamilton advised principals to have “a full and frank evaluation of the risks” at the beginning of the project.
