Practice Areas


Our firm has advised foreign corporations doing business in Venezuela when entering into association agreements with other foreign entities or local entities, including government owned entities. We have developed a significant experience in the negotiation of joint venture agreements, from which we have derived structures, agreements and schemes to facilitate the operation of the joint venture within the corporate and contractual protection parameters demanded by our clients and with the tax efficiencies permitted under Venezuelan law, including its tax treaties. We have also rendered our services in connection with disputes in the operation of a joint venture or its termination, which give us a different perspective to some issues, sometimes underestimated when starting a new project.

We have expertise in the use of different levels of agreements, the preparation of joint venture agreements and the drafting of corporate documents that provide adequate legal frame for projects that require the participation of different partners.
