Contract Negotiations and the Importance of Being EarnestMäenpää, Kalle
JFT 2010/4 s. 322–350
Business-to-business contracts are usually concluded after lengthy negotiations. If a party withdraws from costly negotiations before the contract is clearly concluded, the parties can disagree on whether they have already entered into a binding contract, and if not, who covers the negotiation costs and losses that have incurred. The article attempts to answer the following questions: when can liability for failed contract negotiations incur, what is the amount of compensation and what is the legal nature of the liability? In addition a comparative and international approach is applied.
