Joint Venture Law

Global economic developments and technological innovations increase competitiveness rapidly and make it difficult to reach the targeted economic wealth day by day. Therefore, For investment and entrepreneurship activities businesses tend to establish strategic alliances and do joint business with domestic or foreign investors and companies. Companies come together for a common economic purpose by combining their knowledge and capital for the purpose of doing joint business and form a partnership structure under the name of “Joint Venture” in international terms. Joint Venture can be defined as a joint business structure where more than one legal person comes together and decides to act together. In teaching,we can speak of joint venture “When more than one real or legal person, legally and economically independent from each other, comes together within the framework of a contract in order to realize a certain business or a continuous activity by establishing a commercial partnership or without such a partnership and to make a profit, and to bear the risks of that activity when each of them undertakes the responsibility severally.”

The terms “Joint Venture” and “Consortium” should not be confused. The consortium arose from the need to carry out large-scale and large-scale works, as in the Joint Venture. A “consortium” is in question when people come together to carry out a certain job or works together and each of them assumes the responsibility of performing only a part of the work independently of the others.It is important not to confuse the Joint Venture with the Consortium. Each partner in the consortium will fulfill its own obligations and is responsible for that part. In Joint Venture, on the other hand, joint and several liability is essential as explained above.

Joint Venture; This partnership adopts advantages such as to keep up with technological developments of national and international domestic or foreign investor companies, to discover and enter foreign markets quickly, to reduce risks and costs, to combine capital forces, to provide raw materials and logistics in a shorter time and with less cost, to get ahead in the competition race.

The biggest disadvantage foreseen for Joint Venture is; that the risk level is quite high because the application is mostly aimed at an unknown region or sector. For these reasons, in order for Joint Venture preparatory projects to be successful, maximum care must be taken to minimize the risk level in both domestic and international processes. Not only legislation and international practices should be investigated but also sectoral conditions and social structure in the target regions should be investigated in as much detail as possible. For all these transactions, getting legal support at the very beginning of the process with a law firm that is qualified, expert in the subjects, has strong local support and provides services will not only prevent the occurrence of irreparable damages, but will also lead the investment venture and investment partnership to success. The first stage of realizing the investment initiatives and projects of national and international domestic or foreign investor companies is the investment-specific company establishment. Making the right division of duties and scope for the investment partnership, determining how the investment partnership will be managed, and preparing the articles of association, the shareholders’ agreement, the voting agreement and management agreements correctly and competently and establishing the partnership structure in accordance with its commercial purposes is of vitally critical importance for the success of the investment and enterprise. In addition, a successful legal service regarding the purchase or sale of a commercial enterprise or the investment to be made will provide deep knowledge on legal issues such as Commercial Law, Company Law, Tax Law, Labor Law, Intellectual Property Law, Real Estate Law, Banking Law, Dispute Resolution. Moreover it should not be forgotten that it requires approaching the transaction from a commercial point of view.
