Real Estate Joint Ventures: Opportunities and Legal Risks

October 20, 2010

Traditional bank financing remains difficult to obtain, forcing real estate developers to pursue new capital raising options. Joint venture arrangements with private equity investors have become an attractive financing alternative for both real estate developers and private equity investors.

While the joint venture model offers a number of advantages, failure to carefully negotiate and structure the joint venture operating agreement could create problems and legal liabilities for all parties to the venture down the road.

Listen as our panel of real estate and finance attorneys explains the legal issues that need to be considered at the formation of a real estate joint venture to minimize risk for the parties. The panel will offer effective strategies for determining governance and control of the venture, capital contributions and fees, and for minimizing financial and legal risk when structuring the joint venture operating agreement.
