Overseas Joint Ventures: Opportunities, Risks, and Potential Pitfalls


  • Webcast


    Aug. 9, 2017

    1:00 PM Eastern

U.S. companies frequently enter into joint ventures with non-U.S. partners in order to pursue business overseas.  One recent focus of JV activity is to deliver the defense technology and hardware opportunities highlighted during President Trump’s recent visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Particularly when the U.S. partner is a minority shareholder of the JV, business leaders tend to see such arrangements as opportunities for the U.S. company to achieve the value of direct presence overseas, but without many of the associated risks and costs.  Experience demonstrates, however, that JVs can present unexpectedly significant operational, legal, and reputational risks if not appropriately handled.   

This presentation is intended to provide counsel, compliance, and risk personnel with an overview of the JV risk landscape, identify some pitfalls, and describe strategies for success.  Specific questions covered include: 

  • Why are overseas JVs attractive arrangements for U.S. businesses?
  • What are the different types of JV arrangements?
  • What are some of the important legal terms and issues for consideration in non-U.S. JVs? 
  • What peculiar characteristics make non-U.S. JVs risky?
  • What are particular issues to consider regarding cyber and data security when creating/operating non-U.S. JVs?
  • What are particular issues to consider when partnering with sovereign entities to form JVs? 
  • What are the parameters of potential legal liability for JV partners? 
  • What are some examples of JVs that have gone wrong from a risk perspective?
  • What assistance and services can/should a U.S. company provide to its JV partners?
  • What strategies should companies use to mitigate risk and maximize opportunities?
