A business relationship in which two or more persons combine their labor
or property for a single undertaking and share profits and losses equally, or
as otherwise agreed. General liability policies normally do not cover liability
arising from joint ventures unless they are scheduled as an insured. A manuscript
endorsement can sometimes be added to handle this exposure. Otherwise, specific
coverage arrangements must be made whenever the insured becomes involved in
a joint venture.
