It’s never been more important to be in the moment! Strategic partnering provides companies the opportunity to accelerate growth by drawing on the expertise and resources of other companies with complementary core competencies, without sharing in the ownership of the participating companies. Such collaborations – sometimes with competitors – are typically quite complicated, requiring legal counsel with highly developed analytical skills, well-versed in crafting agreements that will promote the collective success of the parties, and can endure the twists and turns of inevitable changes over the life of the relationship. Legal counsel must also be practiced in reconciling laws of multiple jurisdictions, and sensitive to diverse cultural norms and business practices. We are experienced in structuring and negotiating sophisticated and complex equity- and non-equity strategic alliances, including joint ventures, licensing, manufacturing, agency and distribution arrangements, development, and technology-sharing agreements. We counsel clients on the complex structuring alternatives available in these transactions. We have advised on the establishment of joint ventures around the world, including recent transactions in the United States, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, and throughout Western Europe.
