In complex transactions, international as well as national co-operation between companies require solid and balanced terms and conditions. ICC has prepared this Joint Venture Model Contract for use by small, medium-sized or large companies in order to provide them with a unique, balanced platform that is fair to all parties.
The model allows for a solid decision-making process, a clear allocation of participation and provision of resources, the need for swift and effective dispute resolution, and the need for complete and informed allocation of risks.
It includes a USB key which contains the full text of the model and its annexes, permitting you to easily adapt the contract to your specific case. If parties have no need to draw up a special contract of their own, they can use the entire model, which has been drafted to assure balance for both sides.

This Dossier XVI of the ICC Institute of World Business Law explores some of the ways and means to conduct proceedings in a reasonable time without jeopardising due process. It also looks at the specific issue of summary judgement and the enforcement of such decisions. Looking back through history, the authors consider what we can learn from the past with a view to the future. The Dossier will help arbitrators, counsel and parties to properly address the challenge of reducing the duration and cost of arbitration proceedings.
