Dispute Prevention Committee Meeting

Thursday, June 24, 2021 at 12:00pm


Please join us for the next meeting of the Dispute Prevention Committee.

The committee welcomes Water Street Partners, an Ankura company, that is exploring how joint ventures can prevent disputes among partners through creative governance practices and managing deadlock with tailored contractual mechanisms, as well as how joint ventures can manage disputes efficiently through thoughtful and tailored dispute resolution provisions. They will provide an overview of these governance practices, deadlock management tools, and dispute resolution mechanisms that they have seen joint ventures use effectively. In addition, Water Street Partners is benchmarking a data set of 137 joint venture agreements to see how joint ventures are already seeking to prevent and resolve disputes in their legal agreements and whether certain tools may be underutilized. Water Street Partners is also in the process of exploring innovative dispute prevention and resolution mechanisms used in other industries to see if there are additional tools joint ventures could be adding to their toolbox.

Speakers include:

James Bamford, Co-Founder of Water Street Partners & Senior Managing Director at Ankura

Tracy Branding Pyle, Managing Director at Ankura

Mackenzie Drutowski, Senior Director at Ankura
