What is a Letter of Intent?

A letter of intent or “LoI” is a document outlining the understandings between two or more parties on how they will conduct negotiations and what they will negotiate. 

The parties express their interest in entering into a business relationship that will be governed by a final, yet-to-be-negotiated agreement. A major advantage of using LoIs is that they enable the parties to define the procedural rules applicable to the negotiations (for example exclusivity, timeframe or confidentiality) in a binding manner, whereby the most important conditions for the intended agreement are described in an indicative manner. 

The definition of a content-related and formal framework for the negotiations accelerates the process until a binding agreement is signed.
