Law and Jurisdiction Clause (Long)
This Law and Jurisdiction clause is designed for use in Business-to-Business contracts. Unlike B2C law and jurisdiction clauses in which the jurisdiction (i.e., courts) will vary according to the consumer’s place of residence, this B2B version limits the jurisdiction to the courts of England and Wales.
In addition to the (more commonly used) short-form version of this clause, this template includes an optional provision relating to IP rights and an optional section in which to set out the names and details of each party’s agent for acceptance of service relating to dispute, claims, proceedings, etc.
Optional text is enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
