Harvey Jay Cohen leads Vienna Panel on Joint Ventures
Avoiding pitfalls and exploring alternative structures regarding cross-border joint ventures was a hot topic at this year’s International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Meeting in Vienna. Harvey Cohen co-chaired this well attended session with a top lawyer from Cuatrecasas, a leading firm in Spain. Lawyers from the Netherlands, Japan, Canada, Brazil, Germany, France and the U.S. participated. The three-hour panel covered a range of topics including dispute resolution/arbitration clauses, anti-trust issues and taxation. It also provided drafting and structuring pointers on key issues concerning business plans, governance and sales of interests of the joint venture itself. The interaction with the audience was lively and constant which led to great learning experience among all in attendance.
