The Legal Status of the Joint Venture


Robert Flannigan


University of Saskatchewan

Alberta Law Review, Vol. 46, pp. 713-739, 2009

Abstract:     
Commercial actors commonly describe their group undertakings as joint ventures. That practice has infiltrated the judicial lexicon and appears to be fostering a supposition on the part of some judges that a joint venture is a distinct legal form. The supposition is unwarranted. A review of the American, English, Australian and Canadian case law and commentary discloses no substantive basis for the claim of distinct status.
