Pircher, Nichols & Meeks Joint Venture Challenge

Sponsored by the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy and UCLA’S Ziman Center for Real Estate, this challenge teams up students from UCLA School of Law and UCLA Anderson School of Management to compete in a simulated joint venture real estate deal prepared by Phil Nichols, a founder of Pircher, Nichols & Meeks.

The competition involves teams of three to four students working through both legal and business issues to prepare a professional memorandum answering numerous questions posed by a hypothetical general counsel and investment partner. At the conclusion of the event, two experts in the field present a model answer to the participants.

The winning team, which shares a $3,000.00 prize, is chosen based on the most comprehensive and correct answers to the questions presented.
