In international trade practices, there are often interim agreements that stipulate, in general or more detail, that the parties will negotiate in good faith.

While this clause may seem fairly simple, it can cause problems in its application. Taking into account the provisional nature of the agreement in which the clause is inserted, the difficulties will become more and more serious. The content of interim agreements can vary considerably in practice. In some cases, they can be very clear and detailed about their nature, content and impact. However, in other cases, it may be difficult to determine the nature of the agreement (if contractual) and, therefore, to determine its effects. 93 For the use of «best efforts» in negotiations as a non-applicable «agreement of agreement,» see Shaker [2012] EWHC 1329, para.

See also Yam Seng [2013] EWHC 111, In Paragraph [139], where Leggatt J. discusses the relevance of action with «fidelity» to the promise as part of good faith in the fulfillment of an agreement. In reported cases, this requirement for increased intent is almost always based on an explicit agreement to negotiate a final transaction. The language of the agreement is most often inserted into a letter of intent, a letter of commitment or other documents used at this stage. Without a clear and clear intention to conclude negotiations, there can be no logical obligation to negotiate in good faith.
