Intellectual Property Practice

Joint Ventures & Strategic Alliances


Caldwell regularly advises clients on strategic alliances, which have become an essential tool for achieving corporate objectives and include a broad range of collaborative arrangements among businesses. On behalf of clients across several different industries, we negotiate stand-alone joint ventures involving the creation of new entities, cross-equity and minority equity investments, complex contractual collaborations, teaming arrangements, licensing arrangements, and product development, manufacturing and marketing alliances.

Our strategic alliance practice comprises transactional and tax experience, but also antitrust, intellectual property and other disciplines needed to properly structure complex arrangements. We understand that strategic alliances are different from other transactions, and we are tactful in the application of our unique skillset so that it promotes the success of alliances on which we work. We understand that the success of a strategic alliance depends largely upon the ongoing ability of the alliance parties to work together. The negotiation process must encourage a cooperative relationship among the parties, and we know how to structure alliances to include incentives and precautions to promote the success of the alliance.
