For the economic rationality of parties who choose contractual and non-contractual alternatives, see Goldberg, V.P., Framing Contract Law: An Economic Perspective (Cambridge, MA, 2006) Google Scholar. It is a regulated principle of contract law that „a promise made with the well-understood intention that it should not be legally binding, but only the expression of a current intention, is not a treaty.” It is also essential that a clear agreement be implemented on its terms. … There is no ambiguity in the Memorandum of Understanding between the applicant and the federal tycoon. The parties have clearly outlined certain contractual obligations to which they have been themselves, and they have equally clearly followed those commitments by expressing their intention to negotiate in good faith. The fact that this declaration of intent is consistent with the parties` disclaimer and begins with the word „however” does not have the effect of moving their status from a mere expression of will to a binding obligation. [Added highlight.] Thus, a good faith agreement, like any other agreement, may be applicable, but it must be expressed as a contractual obligation and not just as an intention or expectation.
If you do not understand this distinction and/or carefully prepare a contract in this regard, this may lead your client not to resort to the fact that the other party is not keeping his promise. 127 See z.B. Peel, „The Status of Agreements,” 43-47. On a lender`s implied obligation to negotiate in good faith an extension of a lease agreement, see Empress Towers Ltd v Bank of Nova Scotia  73 D.L.R. (4.) 400. However, our intention, and we understand, your intention to proceed immediately in good faith in negotiating such a binding final agreement . . . [Added highlight] This agreement ultimately failed and Schwanbeck complained, among other things, that the federal tycoon had failed in good faith in his duty to negotiate.
The court accepted Schwanbeck and awarded him millions in damages. The Court of Appeal set aside the court`s decision and ruled that the federal tycoon had in fact fulfilled his duty to negotiate in good faith. The Supreme Court held that this dispute and the commitments made and not made under the Parties` Memorandum of Understanding were fundamentally different: 93 on the use of „best efforts” in negotiations as an unenforceable „agreement of agreement,” see Shaker  EWHC 1329, In. . With respect to the judicial construction of binding agreements to „make the best efforts” in negotiations, see Walford  2 A.C. 128, p. 138 (Lord Ackner).
