The COVID-19 experience has forced many medical practices and healthcare providers and organizations to adopt new practices and technologies. Perhaps you perceive a new market opportunity but lack the financing, expertise or resources to fully exploit the possibilities.
The Watkins Firm works with our clients to continually sharpen strategic and succession planning. The subject of joint ventures is increasingly of interest to many Southern California medical practices and healthcare entities.
What is a Joint Venture?
From a legal perspective, a joint venture is simply an association between two or more companies, entities or individuals who agree to mutually engage in a specific business initiative for profit or advantage without compromising or merging the integrity of the separate companies, entities or individuals.
Basically, a joint venture is a contractual business arrangement between two or more parties.
While it is often mistaken as a partnership, the joint venture is not usually an encompassing long-term business relationship but a limited association with goal of accomplishing a single task, transaction or goal.
Is a Medical and Healthcare Joint Venture The Right Choice for Your Unique Circumstances?
Considering a joint venture requires careful consideration of specific goals and outcomes and how they can and will be measured. What will each party contribute? How will each party help to reduce or eliminate contingent liability? How will the joint venture enable the parties to refer or leverage resources for mutual advantage?
A joint venture allows you to expand the resources and expertise available to you as you approach the healthcare market. It allows each party to enter related business opportunities which otherwise required to much of a financial or logistical barrier to achieve. Medical and healthcare joint ventures allow the parties to share costs, risks, technologies, skill sets and resources.
Objectives must be clearly defined and aligned to a common goal or objective. The Watkins Firm’s experienced attorneys will help you to navigate differing corporate cultures and management styles to find a balance which will work for the limited project associated with your joint venture. Managing objectives requires consistent, transparent communications, measurements and accountability.
