At the outset of a joint venture, it can be hard not to only focus on the potential success that is to follow, however it is prudent to focus on how to protect yourself if something was to go wrong. Our advisors approach their instructions from a first-person point of view to ensure that they fully understand the objectives of the venture and what you are trying to achieve. By doing this, we can properly draft the applicable JV agreements to ensure those aims are met and that the parties have adequate protection.
Acting in tandem with professional advisors where applicable, we seek to advise on the available structures to structure your venture and by our full-service commercial offering our advice can extend beyond the transactional element, advising on essential aspects of a venture that may arise, including intellectual property, ownership, legal rights, profit sharing and control.
SHARE ISSUANCE AND CLASS RIGHTS
Structuring the company’s shareholding is critical. Different share classes can be used to a business’s benefit for various reasons such as employee incentives.
We advise on shareholding and structuring. If seeking to create a new class of shares it is important to take professional legal advice to ensure that the rights given to do not contradict or cause issue with other shareholdings. We can advise on the process, including incorporating any new share class within the Company Articles and shareholder agreements, along with making the necessary filing to formalise the structure.
Ai Law can advise on the structure available to our corporate clients who are considering how best to structure or restructure their business.
