Increased rates of technological change and globalization are leading more and more firms to consider joint venture strategies. From a legal perspective however, little if anything has been written on these collaborative business relationships. Now, two of Canada's leading practitioners in the field have prepared the first comprehensive legal treatment of joint ventures, drawing together applicable case law and statutory provisions, and providing specific examples of joint venture relationships drawn from real experience.
If you are looking for a sophisticated understanding of the nature of joint venture relationships, or a practical guide to structuring joint ventures, this book will provide the answers.
"Joint Ventures provides a wealth of relevant and up to date information, and it is valuable as a concise reference work and an educational tool."
"This splendid book by Barry Reiter and Melanie Shishler reflects business lawyers at their very best. They have applied their formidable talents to producing for both lawyers and business people the seminal text on joint ventures in Canada. While focused on Canadian law, the book draws extensively on the international business and legal literature, reflecting both the increasingly ubiquitous use of joint ventures around the world and the transnational plans and activities of many Canadian businesses."
