Joint Ventures

Joint ventures are preferred entities for many real estate investment and acquisition transactions. Cadwalader has remained at the forefront of this evolution by developing unique and flexible joint venture structures, strategic alliances, partnerships, and quasi-partnerships for both domestic and foreign businesses that come together to invest in and manage real estate assets and in real estate syndications and mortgage-backed security pools.  Drawing on the capabilities of attorneys from several disciplines, we have structured, negotiated and prepared joint venture agreements for corporate, limited liability company, general and limited partnership, contractual and other forms of joint enterprise.
