Abstract or Introduction
This research paper attempts to unpack and analyse various viewpoints and judicial pronouncements on the issue of a separate legal status for Joint Venture vis-à-vis Partnership in some jurisdictions such as Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and the United States.
The paper will aim to simplify, as much as possible, the meaning and types of Joint Venture and argue in favour of a regulatory statute for Joint Ventures, with special reference to Resources Joint Ventures as obtainable in Australia and New Zealand. In doing so, the paper will set out the contexts and legal parameters that embody the concept of Joint Venture. Joint Venture statutes are gradually becoming necessary bearing in mind the ever-increasing rate of cross-border transactions, as well as international activities towards the harmonisation and codification of legal principles and their applications into a single legal framework, which started before the turn of the twenty-first century and have intensified since then.
