Joint Venture


We represent parties in real estate joint ventures, including organizing limited liability companies and partnerships, from two to several investor members and partners for real estate developers, owners, and tenants. We assist in the structure and planning of each entity, as well as draft and negotiate operating agreements, and advise on management, equity returns, distribution and buyout provisions. Moreover, we advise on entity governance during real estate projects.
