As a general rule, only one of these elements does not result in a joint venture recognized by the courts. Parties to a joint venture have a common expectation as to the nature and level of the financial and intangible objectives and objectives expected of the joint venture. In general, objectives and objectives are closely focused. The resources provided by each participant represent only part of the total resource. Each member has a right of control over the other, without the restrictions expressly agreed in the joint venture agreement being applied. However, the courts have found that the dissolution of a community company with two 50% shareholders has a margin of appreciation and must be decided on a case-by-case basis. Hopkins v. Hopkins, 1982 Del. Ch. LEXIS 476 (Del. J.C. 21 Sept. 1982).

However, most joint ventures are longer-term commercial cooperations, with some financial or temporal obligation, with a detailed agreement necessary to protect the interests of the parties. For these joint ventures, we always recommend a lawyer contribution for the development of the agreement. If reducing the likelihood of a cultural conflict is the “main transition” to a joint venture agreement, then ancillary contracts of relationship, trust and respect should make it even more viable. The criteria for the existence of a joint venture in general are generally classified as follows: Think of the essential difference between a standard partnership and a joint venture: although a joint venture is very similar to a partnership, it is more limited in scope and duration. An explicit or tacit contract between the parties is necessary to establish the relationship between the joint ventures. However, the creation of a joint venture requires little legal formality and a joint venture is not necessarily invalidated due to the indeterminate duration of certain conditions. The contract is not necessary to specify or define the rights and obligations of the parties. The relationship can be established by the (oral) agreement by parol. In addition, the existence of the joint venture may be inferred from the conduct of the parties or the facts and circumstances that suggest that a relationship has indeed been formed.

Arnold v. Humphreys, 138 Cal. About 637 (Cal. Around 1934). Companies create joint ventures for a number of reasons, including: the development of an exit clause providing for the possibility of selling shares to third parties can be applied to pre-emption rights on the transfer of shares. The right of pre-emption gives the shareholders of the company the right to be offered the transfer shares before they are offered to a third party who is not yet a shareholder of the company. Pre-emption rights are generally included in the company`s statutes. The third party who acquires the shares of the joint venture is generally required to enter into a shareholders` agreement or an agreement to respect an existing shareholders` agreement which implies that the third party agrees to respect the terms of the joint venture agreement.
