Take the following scenario:
- a party wants a company to sign a covenant not to sue where they agree not to sue me
- The company doesn't know the party's name (yet)
- the party does not want the company to know their name as long as they have not agreed not to sue them
Could someone use an alias in the covenant covenant not to sue, and then say that it refers to the person that has signed the covenant not to sue ?
This way, the person has the company sign the covenant not to sue paper first. Then the person signs it too and adds the party's name. This means that as soon as the person has signed the agreement, the company will know the person's name but will also not be allowed to sue the person.
