Checklist on issues relating to joint venture agreement. The checklist assumes that there will be a Joint Venture Company (“Company”) whereby two or more parties establish a business, with its own management structure, in which the parties will participate on an "equity" basis - rather than simply a cost-sharing collaboration without an identifiable jointly-run business.

First Thing is to Understand the Purpose of the joint venture for planning purpose:

1. Who are the parties to the joint venture?

2. What are the primary commercial objectives?

3. Is it confined to a particular territory or technological field?

4. What are the key interests of the parties to protect?

5. How do the parties expect to make a commercial return from the venture?

6. What rights of control or participation do the parties expect?

7. Do the parties need or have an exit strategy?

1. Purpose of the Joint Venture

2. Ownership and Funding

3. Management

4. Minority protection

5. Non-compete
