Associated and Joint Venture

The partners all sit on the joint venture corporation’s board, and together have been able to provide the community with a much-needed resource. Therefore, a joint venture may be a corporation, limited liability Company, partnership or other legal structure, depending on a number of considerations such as tax and tort liability. A joint venture is often seen as a very viable business alternative in this sector, as the companies can complement their skill sets while it offers the foreign company a geographic presence.
