Joint ventures can take many forms and be formed for a whole host of reasons. However, the contractual and operational arrangements between parties have to be formulated to fit each situation in order to set up a framework for success. This paper reports on a project alliance between public and private organisations in Queensland, Australia. As a form of joint venture alliancing is a system that provides a collaborative environment and which provides a framework for participants to adapt their behaviour to project objectives. It is about sharing resources and experiences, exposing the 'hidden' risks. This study took a step towards reinforcing the trust element in the alliance by placing a No Dispute clause in the alliance agreement. A review of the effects of the no litigation clause upon the project team is presented.
