Empirical study was conducted using survey method to examine the alliance behaviour of 612 samples of SMEs executives in Ikeja business district vis-à-vis associated complex issues of alliance partners’ assessment in terms of trust, risk, cost, benefit and objective prior to alliance engagement in Lagos state, Nigeria. The collected data were analyzed using multiple regression analysis. Results showed high level of correlation between alliance complexities and alliance behavior, which implies that in order to increase better alliance engagement and rate of SMEs alliance formation detail attention is critical on assessing issues of alliance complexities, specifically in developing economies such as Nigeria.
