Abstract

This article analyses and critiques English law’s response to the enforceability of renegotiations of terms of existing contracts in the light of dramatic changes in circumstances, such as an economic recession. The article exposes English law’s difficulties and inadequacies in developing clear principles governing renegotiations, and suggests possible solutions.
