Second, the analysis specifies that these instruments constitute “the whole agreement between the parties,” not necessarily the conclusion that all parties are linked to any instrument throughout the agreement. It could reasonably be understood that each party is bound by the document or documents it has signed, and nothing beyond what a reasonable business person (and his or her legal counsel) would expect to enter into such agreements in a complex case. The use of “and/or” instead of “and” in front of “partners of the parties” is only an indication that not all are bound by all instruments, otherwise the “or” is simply superfluous. On the other hand, it would be absurd to engage a party in a contractual relationship if the language of the instrument did not define the right or duty of that party and incited bad incentives for an opportunistic dispute. “1) This agreement [and, if applicable, the list of other relevant agreements] constitutes the whole agreement between the parties and replaces and nulls any previous draft, agreement or arrangement between them, in writing or orally, with respect to that matter.” If there is such ambiguity in the words used, the court should interpret it in a way that corresponds to commercial reality and avoids a commercial aberration. Referrals to other agreements in a full clause of the contract are generally not intended to include other agreements or conditions in the agreement between the parties; The latter remains as it is. The consolidation of agreements and the consolidation of disputes resulting in full contractual clauses are likely to be contrary to the parties` actual intent and will lead to the next chaos. While there may never be difficulty in asking the parties to be more diligent in the development of contracts, the misinterpretation of “full contractual clauses” for consolidation purposes is appropriate and may be stopped. There is no question that entire contractual clauses must “limit the scope of the investigation.” Black`s Law Dictionary defines the “complete contractual clause” (also known as the “integration clause,” “comprehensive contractual clause,” “merger clause” and “global contract clause” as “a contractual clause stipulating that the contract constitutes the complete and final agreement of the parties and replaces all informal and oral agreements relating to the purpose of the contract.” It refers to the “parol evidential rule,” which is described as the “common law principle,” where that a writing that the parties intend to definitively embody their agreement cannot be altered by prior or simultaneous agreements that could add, vary or contradict the letter. The Court of Appeal also agreed that all contractual clauses contain “the documents or documents on which the court may refer” and “the attempt to limit the scope of contractual relevance to the four corners of the document or documents mentioned.” The whole agreement clause indicates that the agreement records all the rights and obligations of the parties in toto. If other conditions have been agreed between the parties prior to the conclusion of this contract, the parties are free to mention them in this agreement.19 Therefore, the entire clause of the contract generally replaces all previous agreements that were not expressly included in that agreement. In the case of Neelkanth Mansions and Infrastructucts Private Limited and Ors. v. Urban Infrastructure Ventures Capital Limited and Ors.20 did not allow Bombay High Court to provide oral evidence and to find that the entire purpose agreed between the parties was only included in the shareholders` agreement, since the shareholder contract does not relate to any conditions of the endorsement agreement.
