Governing Law; Disputes. This Agreement shall in all respects be construed, governed, applied and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws thereof and shall be deemed to be an agreement made pursuant to the laws of the State of New York entered into in the State of New York. The parties hereby consent to and submit to personal jurisdiction over each of them by the courts of the State of New York in any action or proceeding, waive personal service of any and all process and specifically consent that in any such action or proceeding any service of process may be effectuated upon any of them by certified mail, return receipt requested, in accordance with paragraph C of this Article 14. The parties agree, further, that the prevailing party in any action or proceeding as determined by the tribunal making the final and nonappealable determination of the matter in dispute, shall be entitled to reimbursement of all of its reasonable fees, costs and expenses, including, without limitation, legal fees and disbursements, in connection with such matter. In connection with the tribunal’s determination for the purpose of which party, if any, is the prevailing party, the tribunal shall take into account all of the factors and circumstances including, without limitation, the relief sought, and by whom, and the relief, if any, awarded, and to whom. In addition, and notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, a party shall not be deemed to be the prevailing party in a claim seeking monetary damages unless the amount of the final determination exceeds the amount offered in a writing by the other party by fifteen percent (15%) or more. For example, if the party initiating a claim (“A”) seeks damages of $100,000 plus costs and expenses, and the other party (“B”) has offered A $50,000 prior to the commencement of the proceeding, if the tribunal awards any amount less than $57,500 to A, the tribunal should determine that B has prevailed.

Governing Law; Disputes. This Agreement will be interpreted in accordance with California law, including all matters of construction, validity, performance and enforcement, without giving effect to any principles of conflict of laws. Any dispute or proceeding concerning this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration to be held in Orange County, California. Any party may demand arbitration through written notice sent by certified mail to the other (an "Arbitration Demand"). Within fifteen (15) days after the date that the Arbitration Demand is first mailed, each of the parties will confer to select a mutually acceptable arbitrator from the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service ("JAMS"). If the arbitrator so selected is unavailable, the parties will confer to select another arbitrator. If the parties cannot mutually agree to the selection of an arbitrator, or if one party refuses to participate in the selection process, JAMS will appoint an arbitrator. The arbitrator will be governed by the provisions of this Agreement rather than the rules of JAMS. If JAMS is unable or unwilling to select an arbitrator, the Presiding Judge of the Orange County Superior Court will select an arbitrator upon the request of either party, and such selection will be binding on the parties. The arbitrator so selected will schedule the arbitration hearing within sixty (60) days after he or she is first selected. The parties will be permitted written discovery and one deposition each. The arbitrator will have authority to enter a binding judgment even if the parties do not appear at the arbitration and may also grant any remedy or relief that the arbitrator reasonably believes to be just or appropriate, provided that such remedy or relief is within the scope of this Agreement. All fees and expenses of the arbitration will be paid equally by the parties participating in the arbitration. At the conclusion of the arbitration, the arbitrator will award the prevailing party reasonable costs and Attorneys' Fees, including all arbitration costs. If the arbitration award is made, the prevailing party may convert the award into a judgment and execute upon that judgment.
