Ellen Friedenberg, Jim Kobak, Dan Weiner and Alan Kashdan revised and updated their chapter on joint ventures in the critically acclaimed treatise and practice guide "Successful Partnering Between Inside and Outside Counsel."
Mary Beth Gustafsson, senior vice president and general counsel at ITT Corporation (an HHR client), also co-authored the revised chapter, which was published earlier this year. Morgan Feder and Meredith Stead assisted with the revisions.
The treatise is a five-volume, 8,000 page joint project of Thomson Reuters and the Association of Corporate Counsel. The 275 authors include the general counsel of more than 80 Fortune 500 companies and the senior partners of many major law firms.
The chapter on joint ventures explores some of the legal issues presented during legal services for companies setting up joint ventures. The chapter identifies strategies that inside and outside counsel can use to coordinate and facilitate negotiation of a new joint venture, then analyzes legal and business issues that corporate lawyers and other specialists may be called upon to address.
