Covid-19 coronavirus: Agreements to Agree - can they be binding?

May 26, 2020

The market volatility triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic is raising questions about the rights that parties have to exit commercial commitments they have entered into and whether there is any legal commitment to carry them through.
