The term Joint Venture is not defined by law and is used in various ways.
It comprises a wide range of agreements where two or more companies agree upon starting a common business or a common business-related activity.
One form of Joint Venture is the Contractual Joint Venture, which is an agreement solely based on obligatory rights, where there is no hiving-off of collaboration e.g. in form of a project company.
