Agreeing to Agree – When Letter of Intent or Heads of Agreement Become Binding

1.0

Despite a common misconception that you can’t have an 'agreement to agree', in a number of significant decisions the courts have found that “in principle” or heads of agreement expressed to be “subject to contract” may sometimes be enforceable.

This session will examine the circumstances where this can occur inadvertently, as well as appropriate mechanisms to minimise dispute where the parties do intend for their preliminary agreement to be binding.

It will also consider the risks of negotiations surrounding the initial agreement being deemed misleading and deceptive conduct.
