This CLE course will guide real estate counsel through the essential components of a real estate joint venture, including attention to provisions for allocating management rights and responsibilities, establishing manager/developer promote, structuring capital contributions (and remedies for failure to fund), distributing available cash, reflecting the agreed transfer rights, providing for an orderly exit (if appropriate), and resolving disputes.

Description

Joint venture arrangements are subject to very few hard and fast rules, which allows the parties great flexibility in setting agreed terms. There are numerous factors to consider when drafting a joint venture agreement. These include the joint venture's purpose, the management arrangements, procedures for calling capital and penalties for failure to fund, distribution of available funds (which may consist of a promoted interest), transfer rights, exit mechanisms, and dispute resolution.

Given the inherent flexibility and the multitude of factors to consider when drafting a joint venture agreement, the overriding consideration should be to memorialize an arrangement that adequately meets your client's objectives and needs.

Joint venture agreements don't follow a stock package of terms. Instead, the terms are developed on a "deal-by-deal" basis, taking advantage of a host of available variations that enable counsel to align the structure of the joint venture to meet a client's goals.

Listen as our authoritative panel of real estate practitioners discusses considerations for real estate joint venture agreements.
