Oldham Construction Sector Group – Joint Venture Seminar

  • Posted on

As solicitors providing legal advice to the construction industry, Pearson Hinchliffe Commercial law is to host a seminar on how SMEs can win tenders for larger contracts by way of Joint Ventures (JV) with like-minded companies. 

Part of the Oldham Construction Sector initiative set up 2 years ago by the Chamber of Commerce and Oldham Council, this seminar will explain how smaller construction companies can join forces under a JV in order to meet the requirements laid down by procurement officers; it is quite clear from our discussions that there is no reason why a JV company should not be able to deliver a contract as well as one with single ownership providing that the JV company has a sufficiently strong structure to give comfort to the employer that the contract can be delivered satisfactorily.

Seminar Objectives:

Our aim is to devise an economical way for SMEs to break into the larger contract scene. Participants in the Joint Venture seminar will learn the formula which will give a new JV relationship the best chance of success.
