Joint ventures and strategic alliances
Choosing to work with a partner in order to expand your business, either geographically or strategically, should be an exciting opportunity, not a project derailed by negotiations over structural changes or tax implications.
That’s where Withers comes in. No matter the specific challenges of a project, we keep the priorities of our clients in mind and work toward solutions that meet their long-term goals. We have the cross-industry knowledge and the global team experience necessary to launch your venture smoothly anywhere in the world.
After taking the time to understand your goals, we can advise on the most advantageous structure and help negotiate joint marketing agreements, joint development licenses and other strategic contractual arrangements.
When London-based Soho House & Co was looking to acquire a Miami restaurant as part of a larger joint venture, we advised them on the significant structural reorganization that accompanied it. We also helped secure a 60% investment from American billionaire Ron Burkle, which put Soho House on the path to open numerous additional clubs and restaurants in locations including London, Istanbul, Barcelona and Malibu.
After more than a century of advising successful individuals, we also know that new corporate adventures can be deeply personal for some business owners. We recently advised Bertazzoni, a sixth-generation, family-owned maker of high-end kitchen products as they searched for a new manufacturing partner. We connected them with another family-run business in Egypt, ensuring that Bertazzoni would be able to maintain the product quality that has allowed it to expand to 60 countries since 1882.
