Corporate & Commercial - Joint Ventures

Merging with another business can help you grow quickly, increase productivity and increase profits and often enable growth to be achieved without having to borrow funds or raise external investment.


A successful merger will often offer the following benefits:

  • Sharing of risks and costs
  • Access to more resource including specialist staff and technology
  • Increased capacity
  • Access to new clients, markets and distribution networks.


While the benefits are clear, there are a number of risks that you will need to be aware of before committing to a merger.

These risks often arise as a result of some of the following examples:

  • The parties share a different vision for the future of the company
  • There are different cultures and management styles that cannot be aligned
  • The objectives for the merger are not clear
  • There is an imbalance with what each party will be contributing to the merger.


Our corporate team are well versed in helping a business succeed when merging with another business. The relationship should be clearly set out in a shareholders agreement or a merger agreement. This sets out the terms of the legal relationship between the parties on matters that are not adequately dealt with by company law.


Unlike a traditional law firm, we don't charge by the hour and we won't charge for each phone call or email. Instead, all of our fees are fixed and agreed with you upfront. If you would prefer to retain our ongoing support, we will be happy to structure a fixed monthly fee on terms that are flexible to help grow and protect your business.
