Acquisition of a Business Through a Joint Venture

We represented a transportation company in structuring a joint venture with a regional transportation provider in order to expand operations into this region. We advised the client at every step of the transaction, including how to structure the transaction with regard to taxes, formation the joint venture, drafted all of the required documentation, assisted the due diligence review, assessed and advised the client on regulatory risks related to the transaction and assisted the client with the consummation of the transaction. The transaction will enable our client to expand their business into a new region and build upon the existing business relationships of the seller with a reduced initial investment.
