The successful delivery of global mega infrastructure projects will increasingly depend on bringing businesses with different skills and capabilities together through collaborative Joint Ventures.

Joint Ventures – Delivering Global Mega Infrastructure Projects is a comprehensive guide that examines a wide range of Key Considerations and Critical Success Factors in the formation and ongoing operation of Joint Ventures.

Shaped by the deep knowledge of almost 70 Pinsent Masons lawyers and infrastructure experts from Australia, Greater China, Asia, Africa, Middle East, Europe and the UK, together with the insights of over 100 clients, Joint Ventures – Delivering Global Mega Infrastructure Projects is the definitive guide.

The continued integration of technology and infrastructure means that the JVs we see in the years ahead for the delivery of complex global mega infrastructure projects will not necessarily be of the type we commonly see today.

New alliance and enterprise-based models will challenge tried and tested JV models to tackle complex and innovative global mega infrastructure projects. Participants must think longer and harder about the reasons they are collaborating to ensure that JVs meet new challenges.

Joint Ventures - Delivering Global Mega Infrastructure Projects is a guide presented across 10 modules which can be read individually or as part of the coordinated guide. Also included are Industry Perspectives where learning may be useful in considering how the Automotive and Oil and Gas industries have used JVs.
