Summary A Real Estate Joint Venture, broadly stated, is merely collaboration between two or more parties where the parties enter into a specific agreement to buy, develop and manage specific real property and improvements thereon. Often, the joint venture will operate through a separate company where each party participates as a partner or shareholder. The terms of the joint venture are set out in a Real Estate Joint Venture Agreement or a Collaboration Agreement, which resembles in most respects the terms of any partnership, shareholder or operating agreement. NOTE: Real Estate Development will require substantial forethought related to analysis of zoning restrictions, compliance with state and local laws and ordinances, licensing and permitting, contractor and sub-contractor procurement, improvement schedules and marketing programs. In addition, advance commitments from tenants and/or buyers may be required to ensure the maintenance of necessary funding.

Restrictive Covenants Such restrictive covenants offer the Company statutory remedies for violation and often prevent a Partner from unfairly competing against it or disclosing its confidential business information. As always, ensure any such restrictive covenant is within statutory parameters. Mediation and Arbitration Mediation and Arbitration should always specify a location in Client's jurisdiction (preferably, in the same county where they run their business). Mediation is a non-binding way to settle the dispute quickly and amicably. If unable to settle in mediation, arbitration is first option available.
